Dreadnought developer lays off third of workforce days after game's release

Financial problems to blame.

The story is too old to be commented.

Being in the game industry is a stuff ass career. I don't envy anyone in it. Hope they find new jobs.

I thought this game looked awesome. Never got to play it though because I have an xbox

The game is completed, are they supposed to just pay people to sit around? Developers are pretty much contractors, they know well in advance that they should be seeking their next assignment.

And that's an issue with the business, given that the lion share of - any - profits goes to shareholders. A mentality that includes giving little to no security to dev teams, overworking them, and shortchanging them in anyway possible besides.

Hasn't this game been out for a year?

It was a big mistake to make this very niche title free to play.Stupid and very risky business decision.
