Redundancies at Kinect Sports Developer Rare
Posted by James Newton
The exact number and nature of the redundancies isn't known, but a spokesperson for the company had this to say:
I can confirm that a small number of employees in the art department of Rare Studios have been informed that their roles are at risk of redundancy. While redundancies are never easy, these organisational changes are part of Rare's ongoing strategy and operational planning which typically coincides with the shipment of a title. We are working closely with the affected employees to support them through this transition and help them apply for other roles within Microsoft.
Last year, Rare spoke of its big plans for Kinect, plans we hope are not in jeopardy due to these redundancies.
