The curse of Wolfenstein: staff axed at Raven Software and Endrant Studios
What a nice way to celebrate the launch of your new game: fire dozens of the staff who worked on it.
Internal Activision studio Raven Software has laid off 30-35 staff, according to GI.biz. The studio have just completed X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Wolfenstein, and some sources blame poor sales of Wolfenstein for forcing Raven to shift from being a three-game studio to being a two-game studio.
Meanwhile, Endrant Studios, the UK-based studio that worked on the multiplayer portions of Wolfenstein, has also made redundancies. The team was formed last year and Woflenstein was their first project. Endrant employed 17 staff, and it’s unclear how many were affected by the redundancies.
