That would be horrible. Imagine relocating across the country for this job only to be let go the next week.

Tech companies do this all the time. Higher ups get the word early but don't tell anyone under them because of moral. So business moves as usual which means new hires coming on board.

I've seen this way too many times here in the bay area.

This is standard in Business, sadly. It's the exact same as you promote a product as being the biggest and best up until the moment comes to pull the plug. Same with this. I'm guessing TTG were looking everywhere they could for new money and keeping everything running as usual but whatever the upper people had fell through and then it was just a house of cards all the way down.

they should work together with Supermassive Games or Dontnod Entertainment, either one.

The sad thing is a lot of them now have mortgages or apartment leases they can't afford. Their credit score is going to be ruined because of this.
