Ratbag Closed

Midway closes San Diego, Aussie studios on GameSpot reports that Midway has pulled a bit of a Grinch move, closing their San Diego, California and Adelaide, Australia studios just a couple of weeks before Christmas. The Australian closure is surprising, as Midway just acquired Ratbag Studios to be their Aussie studio in August (story), but the report cites a recent string of losses as a likely motivation behind the move, so this may be a case of Ratbags being thrown off a sinking ship.

This is based on the assumption that Games development actually is a sub-set of the I.T. industry, I'v only worked in the business and R&D sides of I.T. in Australia, so ...
Right now it's quite hard to find good I.T. jobs in Australia. The beginning of the year is the hardest time to get new IT work in Australia.
I'd prefer to be looking for a new job about August, if I had to, so sooner would have been better.
But this is probably as soon as Midway could do it!
