big waves of layoffs at Hangar 13, the game at a standstill? News @VGR


While the studio is preparing a new game, the parent company has decided to fire several of its employees at Hangar 13.

We must believe that the departure of Haden Blackman, yet Director of the studio for almost 8 years, was not trivial. The man who said he wanted to go elsewhere obviously had a thin nose, unless he was kindly shown the exit as if nothing had happened.

At this rate they will really end up at 13 in a shed

And if doubts are allowed today, it is because shortly after his departure, the big bosses above the studio decided to cut heads. As Kotaku reported just under 50 people from the Novato branch (which included 87 employees) were recently dismissedit’s Bloomberg’s turn to share his sad discoveries through Jason Schreier.

We then learn that, During a recent virtual meeting, the new boss of Hangar 13, Nick Baynes, indeed announced a new wave of layoffs. Take-Two, the parent company, has also confirmed the dissolution of several positions, without wanting to say how manyand wanted to reassure his small world by ensuring that the company was committed to trying to find new positions within Take-Two for employees who would like it.

2K is fully committed to the future of Hangar 13 as the studio navigates a difficult but ultimately promising period of transition. We make every effort to work with affected employees to find them new roles in other projects and teams at 2K, and provide comprehensive support to those who cannot be redeployed, connecting them to networks and resources. industry to find new opportunities outside of 2K.

Moreover 2K ensures that the dismissals have nothing to do with the game Volta $50 million project that was cancelled.It’s a very dark time for Hangar 13, while the studios attached to it are hard at work on a new Top Spin and especially on Mafia 4, which should be a prequel to the eponymous series. Besides, the game should normally not be impacted by internal changesalthough it’s hard to say what the future holds for the studio.
