Silicon Knights Sacks 75% of Staff

All things considered, this is actually expected. Working with Activision, it's a sure bet that the developer hired a lot of contract developers to complete X-Men Destiny. With those contracts up it makes sense for Silicon Knights to cut staff back to a maintainable number.

We'll be sure to update with any further details coming from the developer.
