Layoffs Hit Obsidian

The developer behind Fallout: New Vegas, Alpha Protocol, and the upcoming Dungeon Siege III has laid off several employees. The news comes as affected employees have updated their twitter feeds over the last few days, announcing their departure from the company.

It isn't unusual for a publisher to staff up for a project, and then trim down again after completion. Maybe that's what's happening at Obsidian, but some of the former staffers had been with the company for several years, so they clearly weren't all temporary employees. Also, most were involved with Fallout: New Vegas, so that doesn't seem like a good sign for more DLC beyond what has already been announced.

You can read the tweets and learn more in this thread over at Obsidian's forum. As always, best of luck to those affected by the layoffs.
