Disney cuts jobs at social dev Three Melons
Source says "30 jobs and counting" gone at Playdom internal studio
Disney has cut at least 30 jobs within its Interactive Media Group division, Gamasutra reports.
A representative for the company confirmed that it had made redendancies in an effort to "refine" its digital business.
"As part of our ongoing strategy to best position the Disney Interactive Media Group for success in digital media, we continually evaluate and refine our business," the representative said in a statement. "As part of this process we've made targeted layoffs within the division."
An anonymous source later told the site that "30 people and counting" have been made redundant at Playdom's Three Melons studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is not yet known whether the job losses have affected other areas of the division. Disney declined to offer further comment.
