Earlier today, Bethesda Softworks confirmed the rumor that an unknown number of employees have been laid off from id Software.
“As part of its standard business practice, id regularly evaluates staffing to ensure it has a workforce that meets the needs of the studio,” said VP of marketing and PR Pete Hines in an email.
“As part of that process, some id employees were recently let go, he continued. “id is still recruiting and hiring qualified developers, and development work on future id titles continues unabated.”
Despite the layoffs, development on Doom 4 continues. It is unknown if the layoffs hit the team responsible for RAGE or anybody on the Doom 4 team.
