The teams behind Gigantic, Motiga, are facing layoffs across the studio. The future of the Motiga and Gigantic is uncertain but they are seeking financial assistants from a number of investors.
In a blog post Motiga assures the community of that they will try to remain transparent. They promise to try to keep Gigantic’s game service going for everyone in the beta. The studio insist that all layoffs will be temporary.
Motiga continues to engage in active discussions with our partners to identify ways to remedy this situation, but we are not in a position to provide any specific information on our next steps at this time. It is of course our goal, and our deep hope, that we are able to secure the necessary funding in the near future in order to bring Gigantic to market.
The hearts and minds of XBE go out to all those effected.
