Publisher Cancels Unannounced Double Fine Project, 12 Employees Laid Off 22 Nov, 2014 / 4 comments

Double Fine's publisher woes haven't improved as of late it seems, as Gamasutra is reporting that one of Double Fine's unannounced projects was unexpectedly cancelled by its publisher, which led to them having to lay off 12 people.

Tim Schafer states that "Broken Age, Massive Chalice, and Grim Fandango Remastered, were unaffected".

We at Mojo hope those affected get back on their feet soon and wish them the best of luck in the future.

    Very sad. Just before the holidays too. I hope the guys that were let go will be able to find something else soon.

    You pretty much never hear this out of Double Fine. Sad news.

    Yeah, I remember in one of the Broken Age documentary videos they were talking about how they never had to let anyone go due to money issues. It's definitely sad to see it happen.

    I also had no idea that Costume Quest 2 was published by Majesco.

    Man kickstarter is proving to be a more stable source of funds than publishers, weird.
