Layoffs at Singularity studio Raven Software

Another round of redundancies at internal Activision studio following completion of latest title

Internal Activision studio Raven Software has let around 40 staff go according to reports, as the company refocuses on digital content.

A report by consumer blog Kotaku suggests around 40 members of staff have been axed, although Activision would not clarify figures, only stating the studio was being realigned following the release of it's most recent game.

"With the recent completion of Singularity, Raven Software is realigning its workforce to better reflect the studio's upcoming slate," said the publisher.

The studio suffered the same fate last year, with between 30-35 staff dismissed after the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Wolfenstein.

As well as Marvel franchise titles, Raven has also been responsible for Hexen, Star Wars, Quake and Soldier of Fortune games. Singularity, released this year after a number of delays, has a Metacritic score of 76.
