Hardsuit Labs underwent layoffs, following the announcement last week that it was dropped as the developer of Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2.
Several employees at the Seattle studio announced on Twitter that they were laid off, with writer and narrative designer Anna C. Webster saying she was made redundant "alongside the rest of the narrative department (and many others)."
Another member of that department, narrative designer Nicole Stanford, confirmed that "the entire narrative team including [herself] were affected." Lead narrative designer Samantha Wallschlaeger, which was hired back in October, was also laid off.
The extent of the redundancies beyond the narrative team is unclear at this stage, with at least one producer affected too.
