Free Radical Cuts

It's not a very merry Christmas for Free Radical Studios, as 1UP has word that 140 employees have been made "redundant," as attempts continue to rescue what can be salvaged from this developer that is currently struggling in administration. They quote Cameron Gunn of administrators ReSolve Partners: "We made around 140 employees redundant yesterday, effective 31 December (the date up to which they had been paid). We're still trading on with the remaining 40 or so employees, have advertised the business for sale and have received some strong interest." Thanks Mike Martinez.

Crappy time of the year to be looking for work

You said it. Seems like the Employment sections in newspapers have been cut to a third.

Sounds like a post-project fat trimming. 180 employees? Insane.

Crappy time of the year to be looking for work, best wishes to those affected and their families. Hope you guys find work soon.

Given that FR are based in Nottingham, I'd say those destitute developers will probably be resorting to knife crime to get by.

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.
