Warner Brother Confirms LayOffs At Monolith, Surreal, And Snowblind

Last year Warner acquired most of the Midway assets and various development studios in Chicago/Seattle, and now that it has had time to evaluate its new properties WBIE confirmed earlier rumors that it has laid off 25 people at Monolith (which it acquired in 2004), Surreal, And Snowblind.
"We are committed to growing Warner Bros. in the game space and will be retaining robust teams in our Seattle studios," the publisher said in a statement. "We have been moving towards sharing certain resources across the studios and have also been reallocating resources to align talent with our development needs. Unfortunately, we had a few too many resources in certain functions and some positions were eliminated in this process. Our plan is to continually review staffing needs and as future projects evolve we would expect to see the studios grow."
