According to a GameIndustry International report and this NeoGaf thread, a handful of IGN and 1UP employees have been laid off today. IGN's Jack DeVries and 1UP employees Matt Leone, Thierry Nguyen, and Ryan Winterhalter have been let go.
"As of today, I no longer work for 1UP. Not sure what's next yet. Contact me and offer me glorious things!" tweeted Matt Leone.
"After nearly six fantastic years, my stay at @IGN has come to an end. Thank you to everyone that made it the best job I ever had," said DeVries.
We wish all those affected well wishes and a quick landing at a new job.
