Update on THQ job losses in Phoenix

Classic Dungeons & Dragons back in print! - Available now @ Dungeon Masters Guild

MX vs. ATV Alive (THQ)Last week I reported on THQ closing their video game development studio in Phoenix. It’s part of a reorganization worldwide that will cost about 200 people their jobs.

The Phoenix Business Journal now puts the Phoenix operation’s share of those cuts at 48. THQ says it is trying to find affected workers new positions elsewhere.

The operation, formed as Rainbow Studios in 1996, developed the MX vs. ATV racing games, which have been discontinued as the company now seeks to focus more on “hardcore” gaming properties.

A quality assurance team in Phoenix will continue to operate, THQ said.
