Volition Layoffs Reported

Over 30 employees were laid off this week from Volition, reports Kotaku, 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.

Descent is not Freespace 2. And you're talking about sales in 1999. This is 2017 when people can't get enough space games. A single player space shooter sim won't make Overwatch $$$, but you wouldn't need to invest anywhere remotely close to that amount of development overhead.
