Aliens: Colonial Marines

Layoffs hit TimeGate Studios, the Houston, Texas-based studio that helped develop Aliens: Colonial Marines, today, the president of the studio confirmed to Polygon.

“Today, we had to make the difficult decision to let go of some great game developers. This is never easy, and we’re doing all we can to assist those developers affected,” TimeGate president Adel Chaveleh told Polygon. “TimeGate is preparing, as is the entire industry, for the transition to next-generation consoles and new business models. As part of this reinvention, all projects and strategic initiatives continue to move forward at the studio.”

While Chaveleh did not detail the number of people impacted, sources tell Polygon that about 25 people were let go from the studio this morning. The sources also say the layoffs were connected to a publishing deal falling through earlier this month.
