According to a press statement by THQ: "THQ confirms a reduction in force to the company's administration and publishing organization. As recently announced, the company is exiting the kids' licensed games category, and is focusing on its core game franchises and developing its digital initiatives."
None of the company's core internal studios, including Vigil, Volition, Relic, THQ San Diego, and THQ Montreal, were unaffected by the layoffs.
THQ will be holding an investor conference call on the 2nd February to lay out its new strategic plan and what the future holds for the publisher.
