Lay-offs at Slant Six Games

Temporary.

Posted By | On 11th, Apr. 2013

Slant Six Games, the developer behind Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City, has temporarily laid off a bunch of staff and will rehire them later.

“This necessary measure has been taken to reduce the size of our team and to decrease interim operating costs while we continue to negotiate new business,”  their statement read.

Temporary lay-offs provide us with a time period to keep everyone’s employment position open with full benefits. The intention is to reinstate all of the people affected when new projects or funding has been secured.”

The game industry is going through a tough time and hopefully with the next-gen consoles, things could change. This isn’t the first time Slant Six has laid off their staff, but once they get funding or work on a new project, they intend to rehire the people they fired.
