It’s never great to write an article about layoffs in any industry, especially the game industry, but unfortunately it is considered gaming news. Kotaku is reporting that an undisclosed number of Id devs have been let go, presumably from the group that worked on the luke warm received game mentioned above. One would think that the over promise/under deliver approach to gaming, that eventually ended up to be, might have been part of it. While sure the game had a pretty bad story, it did look visually amazing so here’s to hopes that every one of the people let go will easily find new work and make some more beautiful games.

Shitty game is shitty. Although it sucks to have someone lose their job, maybe they will think twice before releasing crap again.
Sadly yes, shitty games make shit for money.
