The publisher Atari is responsible for the deletion of 51 jobs at the developer Eden Games (Test Drive Unlimited 2). This is a recent report out of the trade magazine. Therefore have more than half of the 80 employees take their hat.
As a spokesman for the developer has told the magazine, Eden Games now had the price paid for the wrong management of Atari. For about ten years, there have always been new plans for restructuring, which failed, but all of them. Although you by Eden Games have always responsive acts, be with them were unsure of the redundancies discussed sufficiently.
For this reason, called Eden Games on a symbolic strike, which laid down all employees a day of work. With this action, we obtain a better communication and cooperation with Atari. In addition, we wanted to have an interview with Atari's CEO Jim Wilson, who had allegedly never been presented in person.
Whether and in what way this strike will affect the development of further additional content for the racing game Test Drive Unlimited 2, is not known.
