Naturally this could be absolutely nothing and just business as usual in the game industry but it was reported over at IGN that Airtight Games—the developer behind the upcoming Murdered: Soul Suspect game has laid off 14 people. It’s never good to see people lose their jobs so hopefully they will land on their feet and find employment soon. Airtight has reassured Square-Enix that these layoffs will not impact the release of Murdered: Soul Suspect.
Airtight Games is a valued partner of Square Enix and we hope staff affected find jobs soon. We have been assured Murdered: Soul Suspect’s timeline to launch is unaffected and the core team is continuing to work towards shipping in June.
