Layoffs are unfortunate but sometimes enviable, with Mafia III developer Hangar 13 hit hard.

Reported by Kotaku a large portion of the studio has been let go.

“2K can confirm that there have been staff reductions at Hangar 13 in order to ensure that the studio’s resources are properly aligned with its long-term development plans. These reductions will not influence 2K’s ability to create and deliver its products that are currently in development. We never take these matters lightly, and are working with the affected employees to support them and explore potential opportunities throughout our organization.”

In response, many of the other developers have been actively posting job openings at their studios. For example, Remedy Entertainment was quick to provide open positions after the news went public.
