5th Cell forced to cut staff

45 employees let go as Scribblenauts mobile title is cancelled.

Yesterday lead animator Tim Borelli tweeted that 5th Cell, best known as the developer of the Scribblenauts titles, was closing down.

It turns out that's not quite true as the company has communicated in a statement sent to PC Gamer that it is letting go of 45 people as a result of a cancellation of a new Scribblenauts game for mobile.

Whether the failed crowdfunder Anchors in the Drift remains in development is unclear, but it is likely that 5th Cell is now operating with very small number of employees.

Our well wishes goes out to those affected.
