Certainly more projects than they usually handle at once - and if they're tight for cash?

It is very unlikely that they are so tight on cash that they can't pay necessary employees. Most of the titles (all of them?) they are working on are publisher financed (aka they get money to do stuff). If they have financial problems than someone has calculated with wrong numbers.

It's more likely that they don't have a project to work on where the specific skill sets of the fired people are useful. In that case it's quite normal to let some people go because they are a drain on company resources without producing anything useful.
