Talk about taking a pink slip to the heart! Poor Deadpool staff.

 

 

deadpool2girls_22756.nphdIn one of those big WTF moments of the week. Activision has let go most of the folks who worked on the Deadpool game at High Moon Studios having finished their developmental task.

Activision admits in a Kotaku interview that 40 people have been impacted on the release. In the interview they went on to state the following.

"Activision Publishing consistently works to align its costs with its revenues – this is an ongoing process. With the completion of development on Deadpool, we are taking a reduction in staff at High Moon Studios to better align our development talent against our slate. Approximately, 40 full-time employees will be impacted globally. We are offering those employees who are impacted outplacement counseling services."

Well I wish that the 40 people that were affected at High Moon Studios get picked up right away and most stay together because they put their hearts into the game they made and it shows.

Hopefully this will not impact any future Transformers games.
