The makers of Angry Birds, Rovio, have announced that they are going to be laying off 38% of their staff (up to 260 people) after the company has decided they need to restructure. Angry Birds launched Rovio and it appears that the rapid and massive growth wasn't even close to being sustainable. I don't think anyone is too surprised to see them unable to sustain the levels that they hit when Angry Birds became a massive success. The Independent has the full story over here.
Rovio, the maker of Angry Birds, is looking to lay off 38 per cent of its staff because it “did too many things”.
The company — whose most famous game is Angry Birds, but also makes other games like Jolly Jam and Stella Pop — said that it would “restructure its businesses around three primary business areas. That will involve negotiating redundancies for up to 260 staff, it said.
Only the staff working on The Angry Birds Movie in the US and Canada will be safe from the cuts, it said.
