As has been the news lately around here, it doesn’t seem like any company will be spared from layoffs. It especially rings true in the gaming industry where yet another developer has been hit.

Bungie, the PlayStation studio responsible for the Destiny series, has started their process of letting people go.

Jason Schreier of Bloomberg was the one to break the news to everyone. He stated on Twitter that Pete Parsons, CEO of Bungie, had notified everyone about a “team meeting” to discuss some news.

There have been no official numbers as of the time of this writing. However, those who had been let go have already let folks know over social media.

It’s a strange feeling to wake up in the morning excited for the week ahead, only for your day to begin learning that you’ve been hit with a Reduction in Force and are now on the job hunt.”

All of this is coming after layoffs hit other PlayStation Studios over the past few weeks. Media Molecule, PlayStation’s Visual Arts Service Group, and Naughty Dog were also hit.

As for the industry, we’ve have Epic Games cut 830 jobs. But that’s just a taste as 2023 has not been a great year for employment even if the company has seen some growth.
