  • Volition Lays Off Over 30 Employees

    Over the years, Volition created some pretty great games that includes the recently released Agents of Mayhem game plus the Saints Row, Descent Freespace, and Summoner franchises. Today, the studio laid off over 30 of its roughly 200 employees.

    These layoffs include General Manager Dan Cermak and video editor Josh "Chip Cheezum" Stinson. Stinson was perhaps best known for being the main face on most of Volition's livestreams.

    This all came about a month after the release of Agents of Mayhem. According to sources close to Kotaku, Agents of Mayhem's publisher, Deep Silver, was unhappy with the sales figures for Agents of Mayhem.

    We certainly wish everyone that has been hit by these layoffs all the best.
