Activision reduces High Moon staff as Deadpool development ends

Activision has reported redundancies at Deadpool developer High Moon Studios.

The publisher states that 40 full-time employees have been affected worldwide, and that the moves were made following Deadpool’s completion.

"Activision Publishing consistently works to align its costs with its revenues – this is an ongoing process," Activision told Joystiq.

"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 expected to release in the summer on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
