According to reports about the demise of Realtime Worlds, a number of the staff at doomed studio learned of their imminent redundancy via a tannoy annoucement.
That's according to GamesIndustry.biz, which spoke to a source who detailed the process by which the All Points Bulletin team were informed about their future with the company.
"All the APB team - over a 100 people - were told to gather in a meeting room," claimed the unnamed source. "And then the names of those who were being made redundant were read out over a microphone, and they had to leave the room one-by-one and collect their redundancy package."
As a number of high profile studios head to to Dundee with an interest in recruiting opportunities, news has emerged that a potential buyer connected to RTW is re-hiring 23 staff to work on the near-complete Project: MyWorld.
