Activision Cuts 30 Full-Time Jobs, Expects Fewer Licensed Games


Activision has confirmed that they are laying off 30 full-time employees, and they plan on launching fewer license based games, the publisher told Kotaku.

In 2013, we expect to release fewer games based on license properties and as a result are realigning our structure to better reflect the market opportunities and our slate,” the company told the gaming website. “Approximately, 30 full-time employees have been impacted globally, which represents approximately one half of one percent of Activision Blizzard’s employee population.

Activision did reveal a portion of the layoffs came from Treyarch, but it wouldn’t affect any of the planned downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops II because the cuts at the studio were “minimal reduction.”

In 2013, Activision is expected to release a game based off the hit TV show The Walking Dead, Deadpool; which based off a comic book, and they just purchased the rights to publish Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video games, which the show has been rebooted on Nickelodeon.
