2K confirms the news

Hangar 13, the developer behind 2016's Mafia III, was hit with a round of layoffs today. It's unclear how many of the Novato, California-based studio's employees were let go; LinkedIn estimates the company's size to be around 150 employees and it has been suggested that a significant proportion have been impacted.

Kotaku broke the news today and received confirmation from Hangar 13 parent company 2K Games. 2K said "[We] can confirm that there have been staff reductions at Hangar 13 in order to ensure that the studio's resources are properly aligned with its long-term development plans. These reductions will not influence 2K's ability to create and deliver its products that are currently in development. We never take these matters lightly, and are working with the affected employees to support them and explore potential opportunities throughout our organization."

Ever since Mafia III's release, Hangar 13 has worked on a handful of Mafia add-ons that released in the first half of 2017. More recently, it's said that the studio has been focused on prototypes of its next project. As always, we wish the best for all of the affected Hangar 13 employees.
