Kotaku writes: "Things seemed to be going well at Rockstar New England. The studio had just passed an international milestone on an unannounced project. Then Monday hit, and people were out of a job.
Several sources have confirmed to Kotaku that the entire QA department was shuttered, along with artists and a few other assorted staffers in other departments as well. According to one insider, Rockstar is not enthusiastic about having internal QA departments, but rather, wants to keep all QA at a dedicated QA studio."
