Polygon reports that TimeGate Studios, who most recently were caught up in the backlash of Aliens: Colonial Marines have been forced to let 25 people go. A large portion of the singleplayer campaign of Aliens: Colonial Marines was outsourced to TimeGate by Gearbox Software, and just recently TimeGate lost a contract that led to this decision.
TimeGate Studios president Adel Chaveleh told Polygon:
"Today, we had to make the difficult decision to let go of some great game developers. This is never easy, and we're doing all we can to assist those developers affected. TimeGate is preparing, as is the entire industry, for the transition to next-generation consoles and new business models. As part of this reinvention, all projects and strategic initiatives continue to move forward at the studio."
TimeGate Studios are perhaps best known for their work on Section 8 and strategy game Kohan.
