Game Cancellation Causes Double Fine Layoffs

Double Fine Productions has laid off a dozen staff after an unannounced game they were developing was dropped by an unnamed publisher. Double Fine founder Tim Schafer explains in a terse statement provided to Gamasutra:

"One of our unannounced projects was unexpectedly cancelled by its publisher, forcing us to reduce our staff by 12 people. Our remaining projects -- Broken Age, Massive Chalice, and Grim Fandango Remastered, were unaffected."

Proof that publishers were correct dumping double fine. They are don't have their shit together.

How does a publisher backing out of a project prove that? Games get canned all the time.
