Blizzard Lays Off 600 Employees

Allen February 29, 2012 News No Comments

In a press release from Activision, Blizzard has announced that following a review of “organizational needs,” 600 employees will be let go. However, 90% of those losses will not come from the games division.

To put certain fears to rest, Blizzard states that the losses will have no effect on World of Warcraft as well as the development of WoW: Mists of Pandaria, DOTA, Diablo 3 and Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm – but then again, most of those titles have already suffered significant delays.

Despite the cuts, a link to Blizzard’s job opportunities page was included in the press release, as the company is “still recruiting and looking to hire qualified developers for a number of open positions.”

Kind of makes you wonder who was part of the 10%.
