Sony Worldwide Studios

This is a interesting story from ign.

 

Extracted from source: "PlayStation 4 may still be selling in droves, but unfortunately for Sony, the PlayStation family’s biggest trump card isn’t its hardware. That distinction belongs to Sony Worldwide Studios, the biggest and most esteemed collection of exclusive first party developers in the gaming industry."

I wish you'd bother to do the homework yourself.

Sony is in a transitional period with its restructuring and the way things are looking, it will be done by the end of the year.

All of the employees leaving are NOT from Sony themselves firing people. Get it through your head that there is NO CONSPIRACY going on.

The majority of the lay-off are from people who are simply because a project is either cancelled or 'going gold' where most employees are just contractors, some are going to bigger and better things, some are retiring.

 

IT IS NOT OUR BUSINESS to know why these people are leaving. So just let it be.

Furiously Chaosing

Look up the term "non-disclosure agreement'.

SONY doesnt owe you any explanations... These are internal business decisions...

We are not seeing Studios close workers come and go. Sony may have other people in mind we don't know. Projects end so does the need for staff.


Getting Older doesn't mean it's GAME OVER
It's a better idea to buy games for your PS4
Than to buy a New Console for your PS4

Sony are firing everyone, don't believe most people who'll try and tell you otherwise, Sony wont tell anyone whats going on, but we all know Sony are in desperate times right now.

 

They decided the division to cut losses was the games and entertainment sector. So thats whats really happening.

 

Just people are being given the opportunity to leave quietly without actually having to mention to future employers that they were actually axed.

 

Happens all the time.
