Eurogamer.net cites a tweet from George Broussard reporting a rumor that 35 staff have been cut at Danish developer IO Interactive, with GB also using his 140 characters to say an IO game cancellation is at the root of the firings. Broussard's last such tweet about job losses at EA turned out to be accurate, as does this one, as while the game cancellation remains a rumor, Kotaku confirms job losses with Square Enix: "I can confirm that we have made some internal changes at IO Interactive which has regrettably resulted in the loss of some jobs," a rep tells them. "This is a natural part of any studio's existence when you ramp-up and ramp-down on projects to ensure you have the right level of resource and expertise within the studio. We genuinely wish those who have been affected by this, the best of luck for the future."
