Seven45 Confirms Layoffs

By Michelle Balsan, 6 years ago
Seven45, the studio behind the critically maligned Power Gig: Rise of the Six String, released a statement today regarding recent layoffs at the Boston, MA based developer:

With Power Gig already on store shelves, last week Seven45 Studios restructured the company both as a part of the natural cycle of game development and to focus on the development needs of its upcoming games projects. The studio thanks everyone who contributed to our first game, Power Gig: Rise of the SixString, and we wish the individuals impacted by the re-organization all the best.
According to a post made at Joystiq, as many as 20-30 staff members, including the majority of the QA department, were impacted by the cuts.

While the statement from Seven45 notes that they are focusing on upcoming projects, none of those titles have been revealed at this time.
