Transformers Universe developer Jagex lays off 13

Transformer Universe layoffs at Jagex
British development studio Jagex has let 13 workers go today, "confident" that the loss would not negatively impact its upcoming MMO, Transformers Universe.

"Having reviewed the remaining work required for the upcoming Transformers Universe launch we have made the decision to scale the development team back slightly," Jagex told Eurogamer in a statement today."We have always been committed to developing the highest quality games and services and are confident that this reduction will not adversely impact the game."

Transformers Universe is a free-to-play, browser-based MMO for Hasbro. It was unveiled by Jagex at Blizzcon 2011 and currently seeks beta applicants before a launch this fall.
