Layoffs at Zipper Interactive
Around 33 staff let go after the release of SOCOM and MAG
SOCOM and MAG developer Zipper Interactive has laid off around 33 staff, according to reports.
Studio owner Sony has said the redundancies are routine and "a result of cutting back on production resources after the launch of two major franchises", according to Kotaku.
Sony acquired Zipper Interactive at the start of 2006 as it finalised plans for the PlayStation 3 console, with relationships between the two companies going back to 1999.
