Irrational has confirmed that eight employees have been laid off by the developer, which is currently working on the Burial at Sea DLC for BioShock Infinite.
In a statement, the studio rep announced, "In an effort to streamline our processes I am sad to confirm that we let go a total of eight employees today. Any studio's greatest asset is the group of people that make up the whole, and as such it was extremely hard to make this decision and there is never a good time for this to happen. As co-workers and friends, we wish them the very best."
Irrational has reassured gamers that the firings will not affect the current development of the downloadable content for BioShock Infinite.
