2K Marin Hit with Major Layoffs


Sad news today as it was announced that the developers of Bioshock 2 and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, 2K Marin, has had its staff reduced significantly.

2K Games released the following statement to Polygon:

 “We can confirm staff reductions at 2K Marin. While these were difficult decisions, we regularly evaluate our development efforts and have decided to reallocate creative resources. Our goal to create world-class video game titles remains unchanged,” the representative explained.”

According to sources close to Polygon and 2K Marin, the studio looks to be closed with some of the staff being relocated to 2K’s new San Francisco studio run by Rod Fergusson of Gears of War and Bioshock Infinite fame.

At this time, the exact number of people affected by these layoffs was not made public.
