Warner Bros. has confirmed that its Washington studio, WB Games Seattle, has been hit with a number of layoffs.
“Due to shifting business imperatives, WB Games Seattle has made staff reductions,” said the publisher in a statement. “The group will continue to remain an integral part of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.”
Rumors of layoffs first sprung up through (where else?) Twitter, when 3D Realms founder George Broussard tweeted, “Another Warner Brothers layoff going on as we speak. In progress now. Shame. Hope people land safely.” A source close to the studio then confirmed the reports to Joystiq.
