MOBA studio lays off 16 people as development continues on its first game

Gigantic delayed into 2016

Having played the Gigantic beta, I can safely say that I’m interested in seeing the finished product. It looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer though, amid some unfortunate layoffs for developer Motiga. According to an official post from the company, the studio has laid off 16 employees, who have been given severances and job placement assistance.

The reason for restructuring given is due to the fact that the studio is a pre-revenue startup, with finite resources. Gigantic is still on track for a 2016 release on Xbox One and Windows 10.
