Layoffs at Obsidian affect South Park RPG; next-gen project canceled
A swift bout of layoffs bombarded Obsidian Entertainment this week. Messages left in the company's forums served to lay out a picture of the damage, while further details from Twitter posts help to reveal more the true extent of the damage.
"Another project canceled, this time for a future next-gen project and the layoffs impacted that team, plus the existing South Park team," a tipster told Joystiq. "Approximately 20-30 people from all disciplines, including one person who started yesterday, as well as one who started last week."
How this affects the company and it projects, like the South Park: The Game, remains to be seen. As of now, Obsidian has yet to comment on its situation.
