BioShock coders Irrational Games shrinks in refocusing effort, all but 15 fired
BioShock studio Irrational Games has been dramatically cut back in size. Ken Levine, Irrational chief, said the maneuver is intended to form "a smaller, more entrepreneurial endeavor at Take-Two" with all but 15 employees laid off. Levine said that "to meet the challenge ahead, I need to refocus my energy on a smaller team with a flatter structure and a more direct relationship with gamers. In many ways, it will be a return to how we started: a small team making games for the core gaming audience."
