Neversoft dies

Postby aduro » Thu Feb 11, 2010 9:41 pm

Word on the street is that Activision, in an effort to downsize, has decided to lay off 90 employees, completely dissolving Neversoft in the process.

UPDATE: Looks like the Neversoft name will survive this... for now... but they will no longer be working on Guitar Hero games after GH6

I'm sure Neversoft is composed of a lot more employees than 90 people.

Yeah not everyone is getting laid off, a percentage will probably be merged with other activision teams. Guitar hero isn't dead, you can just expect more titles from quality companies like "Beenox"

I don't think Neversoft's gone. Activision downsized them dramatically because they're only going to make 10 SKUs (2-3 games) in the GH / DJH franchise this year.

Did you hear they're dropping support for the PS2 now, too?

So Neversoft got downsized because they plan not to milk GH and DJH, thereby ruining it in the process?

Wow it's almost as if Activision wants everyone to hate them.

So your saying you hate CoD MW2 cause Activision laid people off, im assuming you are one of those noobtubers that we all love. So if you hate Activision, you hate all associated titles. So what if i say i hate harmonix (not saying i do, just making a point), and love EA, does that mean i hate a certain game franchise, but love the rest of the games they make.

Some people dont realize, that for a company, to stay afloat, they MUST make changes. Like, downsizing operations (laying people off), shutting down devisions (more lay offs), giving pay cuts to theit big wigs and so on and so forth. For a company as big as Activision-Blizzard, what they did would save them from possible bankruptcy or an in-adequate game release (dont say they ruin themselves, GH is a quality title too). It's just the recession taking more victems, IMO
