Condolences as always to those caught out. Best wishes for a speedy return to gainful employment.

I guess it’s supposed to be 7% of CapVan by the time it shakes out. How bad is that?

I have my answer. :(

Capcom Vancouver has laid off 20 staff as part of its regular periodic assessment of overall studio goals. The studio is actively hiring talented staff to support its goal of delivering high quality games.

Not end of the studio awful, but not great.
