Shacknews has word on a number of layoffs at Gearbox Software, saying as many as 25 or 26 employees have been let go at the Dallas, TX-based developer, with poor performance of Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway listed as one of the reasons, for the layoffs. The report also originally indicated that this also involved the cancellation of Aliens: Colonial Marines, but subsequent updates from Gearbox say the game has not been cancelled, as Gearbox president Randy Pitchford is quoted saying that the game has "Aliens isn't canned," and that saying development has "halted" is an "inaccurate characterization." The longer quote sounds a little like Freddy Riedenschneider: "We've made some transformative changes and yes, that's meant some talent changes, but that's not the real story. The true relevance of the story will actually be irrelevant until we release our next game, at which time I hope there will be a lot of interest in what we've done that can produce such results."
