This is the ugly face of the game industry. It was during the gamescom when Goodgames Studio announced to reduce their employees! They said its about 500 employees.
I am not a newspaper so I won’t write much about that. You can read it for example here.
For me its just sad to watch game companies dying or fading away in the games industry. Goodgames had such an success. I am not sure what exactly happened. The competition at the market is too big. Bigger companies buying out small companies or literally absorb them. Even for big companies it’s never a guarantee to stay at the top of the mountain. We need to fix this issue in Germany like subventions etc.
