Backbone Entertainment lays off employees

Backbone Entertainment

Backbone Entertainment — the developer that most recently helped with Dance Central 3 and Midway Arcade Origins — has announced layoffs at its studio.

James North-Hearn, the chief executive officer of parent company Foundation 9, said that no projects would be affected by the decision.

"I regret to announce a round of layoffs at Backbone Entertainment," said North-Hearn in a statement to Game Informer. "The studio will continue to operate at a reduced size and will honor its commitments to existing partners. Due to a lower demand for conventional console development, the studio has made some difficult but necessary adjustments in both its capacity and services, with the goal of matching the changing needs of today's market."

No comment was made about the number of employees let go.
