LucasArts Reduces Employee Numbers

Kotaku has received confirmation from LucasArts that it is reducing their staff numbers at the studio.

A former developer at LucasArts who was working on the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II has suggested that as many as 85 staff have been laid off in the cuts that have been actioned recently. LucasArts remained more tight-lipped about the number of staff who received the axe but has confirmed that:
"LucasArts is reorganizing its teams to better address the needs of the internal studio. Unfortunately, this means adjusting staffing."
We recently reported on the cancellation of a 3rd instalment in the franchise previously so it is no little wonder that staff cuts have been made as well. All the best to those who are affected.
