THQ Layoffs

THQ has laid off over 30 employees from Kaos Studios and Volition, reports Gamasutra. 16 jobs were cut at Volition on Tuesday, where the headcount is now 220. THQ explains: "We must adjust our workforce to fit the studio's current needs, which is a relatively common occurrence in the game development industry." As for Kaos Studios, rumors have circulated for a while that the THQ-owned studio might be closed and/or moved after the release of Homefront, and now word is THQ has cut 17 jobs, leaving about 80 at the developer. "Kaos has a dedicated team in place that will continue to support Homefront with an ongoing, robust DLC and content plan, as well as working on pre-production for future games," says THQ in a statement. "We have made changes to ensure that the team size aligns to the current stages of internal product development." THQ says they will assist the fired employees in finding new jobs.
