Gigantic developer Motiga announces more layoffs, may impact beta test
Motiga, the development studio behind upcoming Xbox One and Windows 10 title Gigantic, has hit another rough patch, announcing another round of employee layoffs. Motiga says that, while the layoffs are "temporary", they account for a "significant percentage" of the studio. Further, the layoffs may impact the currently ongoing closed beta test for Gigantic. From Motiga:
This is the second round of layoffs we've seen Motiga make in recent months, as the studio cut 25 percent of its team in early December and announced that it had delayed the launch of the title until sometime in 2016. Today's news comes just days after Motiga dropped the NDA for the ongoing Gigantic closed beta, allowing testers to speak openly about the game and stream their gameplay.
