Avalanche Studios Hit With Layoffs

Posted on by Ryan


Sad news to report as Avalanche Studios, the studios who developed Just Cause 3 and Mad Max, have been hit with layoffs. The layoffs came in 2 waves, the first taking place in their New York studio while the other half came from their studio in Sweden. In total around 24 people have been laid off.

A representative from Avalanche Studios released this statement…

“The transition between major projects is always challenging, especially for independent developers. We have just completed one project and are currently wrapping up another. In starting up our new projects, we were not able to perfectly match the team sizes and skill sets of the previous ones, and we unfortunately had to let some talented developers go.”
