Obsidian Entertainment - Cancelled: Project North Carolina - Layoffs

by Aries100, 2012-03-14 20:24:29

Gamebanshee received a tip yesterday evening that Obsidian had to lay off a number of people due to Project North Carolina being cancelled. The lay-offs also affected some people working on the South Park RPG. Credible evidence can be seen in these comments below:

Tweet from Andre Nguyen, animator:

Fellow Obsidianites who were laid off today...I was lucky, but I've been on the other end of that. Your talents will take you far!

A tweet  from Jason Fader, producer Project North Carolina:

So long, Obsidian. It was a great 3.5 years. I'll miss everyone :-(

A Google+ post from Michael Bosley, programmer:

Obsidian laid off a bunch of folks today. I'm still there, but it's sad (and part of the biz) to see so many good folks let go. :( 

BuckGB from Gamebanshee writes this at the end of the announcement on GB:

.....it was indeed Project North Carolina that was cancelled, and that the devastating news comes after "the owners weren't paid for 6-7 months" and "401k matching was halted" for employees. Hopefully Obsidian lets us throw our money at a Kickstarter project soon, or I'm going to really start to worry.

So, do you think Obsidian is going to make it through this?
