More unfortunate news regarding jobs today as God of War: Ghost of Sparta developer – Ready at Dawn – has confirmed studio lay-offs. Thirteen staff have been given their P45’s as they simply could not be supported in the transition from one project to another. The full statement reads as follows;
“Most days we feel privileged to do what we do. Some days not so much. Today just plain sucks.
We’ve spent the majority of our time at RAD hiring the best and most talented people to join our team. Today, we had to let go of 13 of these people because we simply couldn’t keep them on board while one project finishes and another ramps up. Unfortunately, these are the woes of being independent…
It sucks. There are no other words for it.
We wanted to wish the best of luck to those guys and girls who have been a part of our crew. We sincerely hope that you will all land back on your feet real soon.”
It seems that there are a fair few game developers out looking for work today – we echo Ready at Dawn’s sentiments and wish them luck.
