Activision has been hit with layoffs, I’m told. FreeStyle Games, creators of Guitar Hero Live, were greatly impacted. “We are refocusing to better align with Activision’s long-term priorities because, as always, our strategy evolves to keep us ahead of a rapidly-changing industry,” a company spokesperson said.


It’s funny how the words “refocusing”, “reorganizing”, “restructuring” and “realigning” always translates to lots of people losing their jobs.
