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.

Agents of Mayhem would have been an insta-buy for myself and my friends they wouldn't have made the stupid decision to leave out co-op. This is like the perfect game for it too.

I would image that's a big reason for the low sales.

True, i would have at least tried it if it had co-op...although all the reviews seems to suggest it's super linear and super repetitive. So probably a good thing they left it out and saved me the $.
