Lucasfilm lays off games staff in Singapore

Yahoo! News Singapore, 4 Apr 2013
Lucasfilm has laid off almost all of its games staff worldwide to focus on licensing out its game titles.
The “Star Wars” studio did not disclose the number of employees affected, but one of the laid-off employees told Yahoo! Singapore the games division in the city-state ranged between 60 and 100.
The person said the Singapore employees learnt of the lay-offs via email from the U.S. headquarters in the wee hours of Thursday and were told in the local office later the same morning.
Many of the laid-off employees, from designers to software engineers, were upset because the projects they were working on were nearly finished, the ex-employee said. Full story
