Well, there we have it ladies and gentlemen. According to the Washington Post:

An email sent by the 38 Studios company to workers and obtained by The Associated Press says they were notified of the “non-voluntary and non-disciplinary” layoffs on Thursday.

As earlier reported today, 38 Studio was rumored to have shut down Big Huge Games.
To be honest, this doesn’t come as a surprise to the LDG crew here. We will be covering the whole situation this Friday’s podcast. What are your thoughts? Personally, I feel deeply for those laid off. Another question to raise is: What will happen with Project Copernicus (MMO)? Now that the entire staff is laid off, and Big Huge Games is potentially shutdown… will another publisher and or set of developers take the project under their wings? Stay tuned.
