Brash Entertainment cuts 20 staff

Movie license developer blames move on "tough economic landscape"

Brash Entertainment has announced it is to cut staff by 20, citing the "tough economic landscape".

Last month, the movie license developer saw a number of high profile departures including chief creative officer Larry Shapiro and co-founder Thomas Tull, who followed the departure of president Nicholas Longano in May.

"Citing the current tough economic landscape, Brash Entertainment has confirmed the company has instituted a strategic cost reduction plan that will see the elimination of over 20 positions across multiple departments," commented an official spokesperson, according to GameDaily.

"Affected by this move will also be the closing of some open positions that the company had planned to fill this fiscal year. Employees affected by this action will receive severance and extended benefits."

"Brash Entertainment will continue to strategically work on its business including the upcoming release of Six Flags Fun Park for the Wii scheduled for this December, and a video game based on the Saw movie franchise for release in 2009," the spokesperson added.
