Krome Kuts

Aussie studio Krome cuts staff on GameSpot reports an undisclosed number of employees have been laid off at Krome (Star Wars: The Force Unleashed), the Australian studio described as one of the largest independent developers in the world. “Regrettably, an undisclosed number of employees across each of Krome’s three studio locations were informed they would be let go, says Krome CEO Robert Walsh. "With declining game sales, the industry is really feeling the effects of the struggling economy. In spite of industry-wide cutbacks and Krome’s need to reduce costs, we’ve worked really hard to minimise the impact on our staff. These cuts, while incredibly difficult as they affect the coworkers we consider friends, are necessary as we position Krome for the future. We’re also actively pursuing several business opportunities which, if secured, will enable Krome to reemploy some of the staff given notice."

I wouldn't say undisclosed. It looks like around 60 people were let go from the company's three studios.
