But getting fired is never fun. :(
TimeGate Studios, one of the teams that helped in development of Aliens: Colonial Marines, has been hit with staff layoffs, reports Polygon.
Twenty-five employees have been let go from the Texas-based studio in the aftermath of the release of the widely critically panned Aliens title, which TimeGate helped develop alongside Gearbox Studios and several other teams.
"Today, we had to make the difficult decision to let go of some great game developers," says TimeGate President Adel Chaveleh. "This is never easy, and we're doing all we can to assist those developers affected."
"TimeGate is preparing, as is the entire industry, for the transition to next-generation consoles and new business models. As part of this reinvention, all projects and strategic initiatives continue to move forward at the studio."
TimeGate was formed in 1998, known for their work with a number of large publishers and developers over the years. Their past work include Section 8, FEAR Files.
Aliens: Colonial Marines was granted a score of 3.5 in the official MMGN review, which dubbed it the "biggest disappointment of 2013."
