Ubisoft's Red Storm Studio Lays Off 38

Ubisoft-owned studio Red Storm Entertainment laid off 38 employees, citing "a realignment of production priorities" -- though the company hopes to place affected employees among its other studios.
Red Storm Entertainment, best known for its tactical shooter series Ghost Recon, has confirmed it has laid off 38 employees from its North Carolina studio. An Ubisoft spokesperson told consumer weblog Kotaku the reason for the layoffs was a "realignment of production priorities". The spokesperson also said that affected employees will have the opportunity to apply for positions at other Ubisoft studios. When asked about the relationship between the employees let go and the future of any Red Storm-produced titles, Ubisoft maintained that the remaining team members would continue to work on the multiplayer features of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier, which is currently slated for a Q1 2011 release. Red Storm was founded by bestselling author Tom Clancy and British Navy Captain Doug Littlejohns in 1996 and focuses primarily on military titles based on Clancy's works. It has produced console and PC games since 1996, starting with Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six. The division is best known for its work with the Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon franchises, although Ubisoft's Tom Clancy-originated franchises are now produced across multiple Ubisoft worldwide studios.
