Jobs lost at Disney’s Avalanche

As many as twenty developers have been made redundant at Utah-based studio Avalanche, according to reports, as part of a substantial cutback operation underway at Disney.

The Mickey Mouse media conglomerate has in the past year cut loose as many as 500 game dev jobs from its once-thriving development fleet.

Next in line for the axe is Avalanche, a US studio responsible for licence tie-in games such as toy Story 3. (Not to be confused with Swedish-based indies Avalanche, developer of the Just Cause series).
