Red Fly lay off staffs because of the cancellation of planned project
Because of the launch of Wii version of Sega’s Thor: God of Thunder, Austin-based Red Fly Studio celebrated it last month. The company admitted it has fired some employees today
"Red Fly was in the unfortunate position of laying off around 30 people on Wednesday June 22," studio CEO Dan Broth told GameSpot. "The reduction of staff was a response to a large high-profile project that was, to our surprise, reevaluated and then canceled.
"Red Fly has been an agile, passionate company from day one, and while this news was very difficult, we’ve made a concentrated effort to reinvest in ourselves and the way we want to make games. Currently, we are all very excited about our new opportunities and working diligently to make them a reality."
Work that established the fame of Red Fly is 2008’s original Mushroom Men games on the Wii and DS. Since then, the studio has developed a series of licensed titles for the Wii. The Nintendo console versions of Ghostbusters: The Video Game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, and Thor: God of Thunder is his product can make money. All of these are received more praise from GameSpot than their Xbox 360 and counterparts of PlayStation 3.
