Less than a year after the release of its first game, Mafia III, developer Hangar 18 has been hit with a massive round of layoffs. As first reported by Kotaku, Mafia III’s successful launch last October was not enough to stem off the expulsion of a “large portion” of the studio’s staff. The Novata, California-based team was said to be in the prototyping stages of its next big project.
The layoffs are nothing new for the games industry or Mafia III publisher 2K Games. The publisher has seen more than one of its major studios experience major layoffs or outright shutdowns in recent years.
2K confirmed the layoff news to Kotaku in a statement:
“2K can confirm that there have been staff reductions at Hangar 13 in order to ensure that the studio’s resources are properly aligned with its long-term development plans. These reductions will not influence 2K’s ability to create and deliver its products that are currently in development. We never take these matters lightly, and are working with the affected employees to support them and explore potential opportunities throughout our organization.”​
