Obsidian reporting layoffs due to a next-gen Xbox project
Obsidian, the studio behind the awesome Fallout: New Vegas and Alpha Protocol (it was awesome), are reporting some job cuts, which is extremely disappointing.
It is being reported that they were developing a project for Microsoft’s next console, and that project was cancelled resulting in a lot of job cuts – as much as 30 people were shown the door.
The next-gen project was called ‘Project North Carolina’, according to the sources at Joystiq.
