It's been a rough few months for Rock Band/Dance Central developer Harmonix, and the bad new continued today with the announcement of layoffs at the studio.

Here's the official statement:

"Harmonix is restructuring our organization to bring it into alignment with our current product development plans. Unfortunately, this means reducing the number of full-time staff. We sincerely appreciate the work of each and every one of these employees. Harmonix is working to ensure that those affected are well taken care of as we make this change."

However, all is not lost, as apparently the company is working on an unannounced music game for the Nintendo 3DS. Also, Joystiq reports that sources close to the company have stated that DLC offerings for both Rock Band 3 and Dance Central will continue.
