The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency, a studio founded by Twisted Metal and God of War creator David Jaffe, is suffering layoffs due to a cancelled project.

Jaffe posted the news on his Twitter today, saying that a project cancellation has forced the studio to layoff the vast majority of the gaming division. It is unknown what project the studio was working on at the time.

The studio was founded in 2013 after Jaffe left Twisted Metal developer Eat Sleep Play. He announced the new studio alongside a PlayStation 4-exclusive shooter, Drawn to Death, a stylized multiplayer game designed to resemble a teenager's doodles in a notebook. The game was critically panned and failed to make much of an impact in sales. 

Our sincerest condolences go out to everyone who lost their job today.
