Armored Warfare is still being worked on in partnership with Obsidian,IllFonic and My.com, but some developers will be seeing their jobs lost as a result of the move.
A representative from Obsidian confirmed the layoffs to Gamasutra.
“This week we let some of our developers on Armored Warfare know that they are being laid off early next year,” said Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart. “The publisher of Armored Warfare decided to move a portion of the development of the product to their headquarters in Moscow.
“We remain extremely proud of Armored Warfare and all the work we have and will continue to put into it. None of the other products at Obsidian were affected by this. We wish our people the best, and are working with them to find homes with other developers.”
Hopefully those affected find a new home for their talents.
