Rumor: Layoffs hit America's Army 3 studio


If you're a US Army game developer, do you get laid off or discharged? In any event, Shacknews reports that the Emeryville, Calif. development studio responsible for the just-released America's Army 3 has been closed, its staff let go and future work on the series handed over to a different team at an Army facility in Redstone Arsenal, Ala.

Its official forums bursting with bug discussions, the free-to-play game's launch has, thus far, been troubled to say the least. If the team has been let go in its entirety, the question becomes: Who's going to fix the game? We've contacted AA3 HQ for an official comment.
