Massive layoffs at Blizzard - 600 people out of work

Posted on March 1, 2012 - 11:00am by Tpayne80

Editor's Note: I just want to mention that most layoffs occur once a game's development is complete. With two or three titles expected to come out this year, do you think Blizzard is just positioning themselves to release something?

Layoffs seem to be a big thing as of late, so what does Blizzard announce today? They're laying off 600 people. CEO Mike Morhaime had this to say.

"Over the last several years, we've grown our organization tremendously and made large investments in our infrastructure in order to better serve our global community. However, as Blizzard and the industry have evolved we've also had to make some difficult decisions in order to address the changing needs of our company."

That sounds so sad right? Well they also said "World of Warcraft development team will not be affected"

Yeah, the people who play WoW are fine, but what about the 600 people you just screwed over? To the 600 people who were laid off i wish the best for you and hope you can fine somewhere else to work .
