More sad news in the industry today – it’s being reported that Boston-area developer Turbine is cutting an unspecified number of positions. This is, unfortunately, coming on the heels of recent layoffs at Zynga and EA Salt Lake City.
It’s always a bit depressing to hear news like this, but the refreshing part is seeing people in the industry rallying to help those affected by the layoffs. Several people took to Twitter to let others know about openings at their studios. Here are a few of the tweets that we saw:
