[Update] 24 employees laid off from LightBox as they become a mobile developer
Update: Gamasutra was able to receive the official word from LightBox president Dylan Jobe, who explained that over half of the studio would be let go as they shifted towards iOS development. The 24 staff members let go will receive a severance and Jobe says they are "still very close" to Sony. We have yet to hear back from Sony, but for now, here is Jobe's official statement.
According to credible sources Sony has pulled financial support from LightBox Interactive, developer of the PlayStation exclusive Starhawk.
Sources say shortly after a team meeting at LightBox, "second and third tier animators" began firing off emails looking for new jobs; meaning the lack of funding is affecting all employees and not just the high level staff.
We've reached out to Sony but they have yet to comment as of press time. With that said, judging by a tweet last night from Lightbox President, Dylan Jobe, it sure looks like bad news was coming.
We'll follow up with more information as it becomes available.

Hmmm....maybe I should try out Starhawk in the future...
I like Starhawk, and I'm an old Warhawk fan. It's such a shame this game sold horribly. I waited years for this game.
I thought Starhawk was a lot of fun, too.
but I love Starhawk, it's the best multiplayer game for me this year and the devs listen to the players and every patch so far made the game better than the last and I love Starhawk. more people should've bought it instead of BF3.
Honestly I never thought Starhawk looked like fun. Best luck and wishes to those who are looking for new jobs.
This has been a bad year for gaming studios, hopefully they can all get hired again soon...
I'm with Tom on this one, I hope that everyone from the studio can find a new place soon. Also, I'm surprised that this story has been up for almost 2 hours and we haven't had anyone get upset over ScrewAttack actually having an exclusive (*cough* PS Battle Royale exclusive *cough*)
so how are those TVs selling?
