THQ: Layoffs "Just Business"

THQ on the future of Homefront on GameSpot features THQ executive vice president of Core Games Danny Bilson discussing the just-launched shooter franchise. Along the way he addresses the layoffs that followed completion of the game's development, invoking the Godfather philosophy: "Well in the film business, everybody says good-bye at the end of the movie and then they go work on something else. I wish we had enough work to go around and keep everybody employed all the time, but sometimes it's just business." Thanks IndustryGamers.

LMAO but in the film business the employee's KNOW the length of their contract usually Im sure not expecting to be continually employed. THQ are sausage suckers, that homefront game made a million for them and they thanked their staff by firing them probably except the 'management' Im sure..
