Capcom Vancouver lays off 7% of staff, but is apparently still hiring

Should probably not trust the 7-11 security cameras quite so much

Worst generation ever. The number of studio foldings and layoffs has been catastrophic.

Even them? Dead Rising 3 was supposed to be already announced, no? We had that user who leaked Dead Space 3 with the co-op details leaking DR3 too...

Good luck to those guys who got let go. It's been a harsh time for the industry. I hope the next round of consoles and business ideas can reduce the frequency of these terrible layoffs.
don't tell me they shipped out ono to capcom vancouver just so they can fire him.
First thing that came to my mind.

Ono was a producer on Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams and there were rumors of a western studio was working on Onimusha around the time of the Lost Planet 3 debut.

How in the hell are devs that aren't EA or Activision kind of big going to survive the next-gen?
When they're bought BY EA or Activision and live on as one of their many appendages.

But I worry about that shit. A company like Treasure, only has 30-40 something employees. They used to be able to put out a new game every 1-2 years. Now their last new game was in 2008, and they only have the manpower to recreate their classics for XBLA.

feels bad, man
