Deadpool, an Activision spokesperson tells Joystiq.
"Activision Publishing consistently works to align its costs with its revenues – this is an ongoing process," Activision says. "With the completion of development on Deadpool, we are taking a reduction in staff at High Moon Studios to better align our development talent against our slate. Approximately, 40 full-time employees will be impacted globally. We are offering those employees who are impacted outplacement counseling services."
Deadpool is slated for a launch this summer on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
