Guerrilla Games, Ubisoft, Sony Santa Monica, and many more developers and publishers reach out to those affected in Capcom and Telltale layoffs.
Class. Hope everyone can land on their feet. I didn’t even know about Capcom Vancouver til now.
After such bad news this is one of the best stories about the games industry I've ever read. Hope everyone is able to find a job out of this.
good, apparently no one at the studio got severance pay :(
Twitter actually being useful for a change... Unless they are just handing out platitudes and not jobs.
it's very easy to send newly laid off people links to your careers page. actually hiring them is another matter
Yup. Hopefully the people worth their salt get an honest chance.
There's actually a shortage of qualified and experienced game developers out there, so I'm sure its more than platitudes. Of course, not all of them will be hired either through them not applying, or just deciding to do something else. For the most part, in the game industry, if one works at an established studio and has releases under their belt, and they aren't let go from the studio due to reasons that are their own fault, it's not really that hard to find a job at another studio.
That’s good to hear. Telltale writing would work well with games more focused on gameplay mechanics.
Great story for a change.
dead rising 4 should have been more like 3 and 3 should have released on ps4 as it would have sold twice as much.
SFV could have been released on XB1 and performed much better than it has to date. See what I did there?
sf5 is an exception, that game received an insane amount of hate prior to launch and sold bad on steam aswell. 90% of multiplats sells twice as better on ps4, that's a fact
Been a bad month for the gaming industry. Very unfortunate to see so many developers get the boot.
I do hate the idea of studios going under, and yes it is a sad day for people to be laid off. At the same time, this is what happens when companies think with their pockets first.
