'Red Faction: Guerrilla' (ALL) Developer Laying Off Most Of its QA Department

by Rainier on March 4, 2009 @ 7:24 a.m. PST

Volition, Inc.'s third-person shooter franchise will make its open-world, next-gen debut with Red Faction: Guerrilla. Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original Red Faction, this third-person open-world action-shooter will return to Mars and once again re-define the limits of destruction-based game-play.

As part of THQ Inc’s, previously announced business realignment plans and related headcount reductions, there was a layoff yesterday at the Champaign QA facility. This will result in the eventual closure of the facility with a transfer of sixteen employees to Volition.

It will not result in any layoffs within the core development teams at Volition. Volition remains a key development studio within THQ and will continue to employ 236 staff.

The layoffs include 47 temporary employees who will not be having their service extended. Unfortunately, fluctuating headcount among the temporary staff is common based on when our games ship. In addition, 39 full-time staff will be laid off.

All laid off employees (both full-time and temporary) will be given at least sixty days’ notice. THQ will do what we can to assist them in finding work in the community or elsewhere in the company.
