Warner Washington studios hit with layoffs

A move to consolidate positions in area studios

Since the Warner purchase of a good majority of the Midway assets, we know that the company is planning a much bigger and robust push into the software development space. Part of this process, of course, will be restructuring and consolidation.

As part of this we have learned today that Warner has made consolidation related cuts in its Washington-based studios. Cuts have taken place at Monolith Productions, Surreal Software and Snowblind Studios. News of the cuts came quickly from a variety of Twitter postings that announced the layoffs.

According to reports, the cuts were necessary due to just having too many development resources in these studios for the number of projects that they currently have on their agenda. Sources claim that some of the studios may “staff up” again, depending on need. While the actual number of employees affected by the cuts is yet to be known, it is a safe bet that this will not be the last of the restructuring that Warner will be doing going forward as it plans for its future releases.
