Obsidian laying off staff

Unspecified number of Armored Warfare developers will be let go as My.com moves some development to Moscow

Obsidian Entertainment is laying off an undisclosed number of developers early next year, according to a Gamasutra report. The affected employees have been working on the free-to-play PC game Armored Warfare, and the cuts will be a response to a shift in development by the game's publisher, My.com.

"This week we let some of our developers on Armored Warfare know that they are being laid off early next year," Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart said in a statement. "The publisher of Armored Warfare decided to move a portion of the development of the product to their headquarters in Moscow. We remain extremely proud of Armored Warfare and all the work we have and will continue to put into it. None of the other products at Obsidian were affected by this. We wish our people the best, and are working with them to find homes with other developers."

Armored Warfare entered open beta in October of 2015.
