Disney Interactive Studios is on a roll. As well as the closure of Warren Spector's Junction Point Studios this week, the division has reportedly had around 50 employees laid off in a separate wave of redundancies.
John Pleasants, Disney Interactive's Co-President, revealed to staff that "changes" were being made within the division in an attempt to "meet market demands" in a "rapidly evolving industry."
According to the LA Times
, the layoffs were made across several locations. Instead, Disney is putting all of its proverbial eggs in one Skylanders
-shaped basket, in the form of Disney Infinity
. Disney's Interactive Media unit, which deals with online content, also lost jobs recently.
