Aliens: Colonial Marines developer TimeGate Studios has laid off a number of staff.
Spun by the studio as a “reinvention,” it is rumoured that around 25 staff were let go after a publishing deal fell through.
Speaking to Polygon, TimeGate president Adel Chaveleh said, "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 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."
Last month TimeGate found itself caught up in controversy surrounding the amount of work it did on Aliens: Colonial Marines, which many thought was a primarily Gearbox developed game.
