THQ Announce Staff Cuts At Kaos, Volition

It's a perilous time for developers at the moment, with Sony announcing earlier the closure of three studios and the loss of 205 jobs, and now THQ have joined in, with 17 staff members cut at Homefront developers, Kaos Studios, and a further 16 at Saints Row and Red Faction outfit, Volition. It's not as drastic as Sony's cost-cutting efforts, and the middling critical reception for the former's recent release may have contributed to the job losses.

However, THQ have come out in support of their recently let-go-off employees, claiming they'll "ensure team members affected by the transition are treated with appropriate concern", and that this won't affect "any current or future titles in development with Volition", who are hard at work on Red Faction Armageddon and Saints Row 3.
