Disney Loses 200 More

In the past few months we’ve seen the closing and firings at Propaganda Games and Junction Point by Disney, the developers behind the Tron: Legacy and Epic Mickey respectively. It looks like things are still going bad, as reports have come in that Disney has now fired about 200 staff members from their own studio. In what is reported to have been sent out to employees via email, Disney Co-Presidents John Pleasants and James Pitaro had this to day;

“Reorganisations require very difficult decisions and this one is no different. We must continuously evaluate our structure and organisation and its needs in order to make Disney’s digital content and businesses even more robust and successful.”

Looks like things aren’t going so well for the animation giant’s game department. We’ll be keeping an eye out for further developments, and it will be interesting to see how this unfolds.

John is what you might call something of a badass. When he's not writing about games or playing them, he's playing in the Kansas City band "Documentary" and drinking as many different beers as often as he can. He's a huge comic nerd in the best sense of the term, with a particular love for the Creator Owned movement.
