Just a little over two months before Civilization 5
lands in the anticipatory hands of strategy fiends worldwide, "approximately 20" positions have been terminated at Firaxis, 2K Games PR Director Markus Wilding confirmed to Kotaku
today. Wilding explained that "Firaxis has realigned its development resources in order to streamline its development process, reduce costs and maximize the overall performance the studio."
Wilding added that the layoffs "will not impact Firaxis' ability" to get Civilization 5
out the door by September 21. We wish the displaced employees the best of luck in getting back on their feet.
