Bungie – like a number of other Sony first-party studios recently – has been hit by a wave of layoffs, as the Japanese giant seeks to streamline its business. Despite registering record revenues, the platform holder has been aggressively cutting jobs this year – a trend, which, to be fair, has been consistent across the entire tech sector in 2023.
In response to the job losses, CEO Pete Parsons has taken to Twitter to heap praise on all those now seeking new employment. “Today is a sad day at Bungie as we say goodbye to colleagues who have all made a significant impact on our studio,” he wrote. “What these exceptional individuals have contributed to our games and Bungie culture has been enormous and will continue to be a part of Bungie long into the future.”
