Aliens: Colonial Marines dev TimeGate suffers layoffs

Aliens: Colonial Marines co-developer TimeGate Studios has confirmed a recent round of layoffs at the company.

While the Houston, Texas-based firm didn’t detail the extent of the cuts, Polygon sources indicate that about 25 employees were let go following the collapse of a publishing deal.

TimeGate president Adel Chaveleh told the site: "Today, we had to make the difficult decision to let go of some great game developers. This is never easy, and we're doing all we can to assist those developers affected. TimeGate is preparing, as is the entire industry, for the transition to next-generation consoles and new business models. As part of this reinvention, all projects and strategic initiatives continue to move forward at the studio."

Formed in 1998, TimeGate has worked on a number of FEAR expansions, developed the Section 8 series, and most recently assisted Gearbox on its poorly received Aliens FPS. In our Aliens: Colonial Marines review we said the game “is like a trip to a natural history museum. It's empty and nostalgic, meticulous and dated."
