The lights are on
From the looks of Twitter, THQ has begun the process of laying off members of its staff. Several (now former) THQ staff have publicly declared their new unemployed status, and you can see some of them below.
Mathew Everett (@sledgehammer70) - Darksiders II and Company of Heroes teams
It's been great almost 2 years with THQ... Best of luck to all my awesome co-workers, we know how close we were to rocking it big time.
Ben Cureton (@verytragic) - Vigil Games lead combat designer for Darksiders and Darksiders II
Anyone looking for a designer? =)
