More layoffs at THQ


In what unfortunately is becoming a seemingly frequent occurrence, THQ has announced more layoffs. This round of terminations is in non-development positions and a different business segment than has been affected by restructuring in the past. In an e-mail that was sent out by THQ president Jason Rubin, it said:

In our quest to make these changes, I have been looking at the Marketing and Production structure at HQ along with the heads of those departments, Rich Williams and Ron Moravek. We have identified changes that need to be made and thus today we reduced the size of these departments by about 20 individuals.

Rubin continues in the e-mail to assure people that the production schedule for all THQ games is unaffected by these layoffs and that THQ will continue to release quality titles.

These new layoffs are the latest in the saga that is THQ restructuring. The company exited the children games market months ago and laid off a good portion of those workers. They then sold their UFC franchise to Electronic Arts which resulted in more terminations.
