Airtight Studios will be working with a few less hands on deck. The Seattle-based development studio behind upcoming ghost mystery game Murdered: Soul Suspect has issued a statement saying they've laid off 14 people, saying "this restructuring is part of the normal ebb and flow of game production." This news comes on the heels of word that Kim Swift—the Portal designer who made Quantum Conundrum while at Airtight—is now part of Amazon's games-making stable of talent. Sources tell us that work on Murdered: Soul Suspect is complete. Kotaku sends out condolences to any affected by the layoffs.
