According to multiple reports, THQ Studio Australia has cut around 14 from its art department. Develop reports that these workers are not being given the option to find positions elsewhere in the either. With this round of layoffs, the studio’s headcount is right around 60 employees. This may be the result of THQ saying earlier this year that it was going to be less reliant of licensed children’s properties, which the studio had focused a lot of energy on in the past.
"We have let 14 employees go at our THQ Australia studio. In the normal course of business, we expect to adjust our workforce both up and down as required by project needs," read a company statement.
We wish all those affected good luck in finding new positions elsewhere in the region.
