Red Dead Redemption dev staff layoffs

Rockstar San Diego, the team that brought us the western smash hit Red Dead Redemption, has announced that they have cut “about” 40 employees from the dev team.

Responding to the cuts, Rockstar San Diego studio manager Steve Martin said; “As is typical with game development, our team sizes have always fluctuated over the course of the development cycle. As Rockstar San Diego transitions from the launch of Red Dead Redemption onto future projects, we are realigning our resources in order to continue to develop games as effectively as possible.

“We are ensuring that all employees who are affected by these changes are being treated with care.”

Red Dead Redemption is still staying strong with a lot of us, and the recent announcement of four DLC packs due for release over the next few months shows that the title still has plenty of life left in it.
