‘South Park’ may be affected by Obsidian Lay-offsBy: Chris Gabbard - March 14, 2012
Obsidian Entertainment is going through a round of lay-offs this week.
In an interview with Joystiq, a source close to Obsidian said the team working on the new South Park RPG was affected, and an unnamed project has been cancelled.
Few other details exist about the mystery project or exactly how the lay-offs will affect production of the South Park game.
20 to 30 people were laid-off, including someone who was just hired the day before.
Members of the Obsidian forum are confirming the lay-offs, citing changes in former team members Linked-In resumes indicating they no longer work for the company.
One Obsidian team member took to Twitter, expressing his sympathy for his former comrades.
Others are offering their condolences…
It was less than a month ago that Obsidian posted this Tweet, inviting job seekers to apply.
Just don’t expect to keep your job for more than a day.
