Blizzard Lays Off Approximately 600 Employees, Diablo III Coming Soon
Posted on Wednesday, February 29 @ 10:50:11 Eastern by Nicholas Tan
Blizzard has announced that that about 600 employees will be cut from its global workforce, 90% of which will "come from departments not related to game development", and they ensure us that no one from the World of Warcraft development team will be impacted. Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment, explains their decision:
As for its publishing schedule (I find it hilarious that Blizzard thinks it has one), it will reveal its release plan for Diablo III soon (always soon) and will "drive aggressively toward beta testing for World of Warcraft: Mists of Panderia, Blizzard DOTA, and StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm".
