Over 30 employees were laid off this week from Volition,
, where they say the casualties include general manager Dan
Cermak. They have not heard back from Volition owner Deep Silver about this, so
it is unconfirmed, but they say their information comes from three sources.
According to these informants, this move was prompted by the disappointing
performance of the recently released Agents of Mayhem
, an action game
intended to expand the Saints Row
series. According to the story, the
developer had around 200 staff prior to this.
