Just last night, game developer for the new Duke Nukem game, George Broussard, tweeted that Sony Online Entertainment Seattle may be closed today.
Here are a few of his tweets:
Word that Sony Online Entertainment Seattle is having lay-offs and that studio closure is possible
To be more clear, the lay-offs may be SOE wide and not just limited to Seattle. So, Austin, San Diego, etc.
SOE Seattle and other studios (Denver is rumored) will be closed tomorrow. Good luck to all impacted
According to CVG, SOE will be closing down Seattle, Tucson, and Denver, while laying off close to a 3rd of its staff.
Smedley even went on to say that they had 115 people working on the game with 50 reserved for post-launch patches.
So what do you all think? Do you think this game is canned or moved to another studio? Either way, its bad to hear about all of the layoffs.
