Big Layoffs Hit Mafia III Developer Hangar 13

*Disclaimer* I'm not trying to be a dick...but here comes something this a surprise to anyone? I mean, the game didn't do well, so now there are cutbacks and layoffs. How is that confusing?

Mafia III developer Hangar 13 laid off a significant number of staff today, in yet another example of the video game industry’s brutal churn. Publisher 2K confirmed the move when reached by Kotaku this afternoon. “2K 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.”
