Report: Transmission Games ceases communications with more than 20 staff

Melbourne, Australia based Transmission Games (formerly IR Gurus) has laid off more than 20 members of its development staff, Gamasutra reports. The studio, which created the WWII air combat games Heroes of the Pacific and the just-released Heroes Over Europe for Ubisoft is said to have made the cuts today, according to the site's sources.

The developer has not publicly addressed the layoffs or its reasoning behind them, but its latest title has met with mediocre reviews averaging a full 10 points lower than its previous game in aggregate scores. We'll keep our eyes on the studio in case of any executive bail outs.
