Robomodo, the studio behind Tony Hawk: Ride, has reportedly been forced to lay off 30-60 team members due to the game’s poor performance. The game sold only 114,000 units in its first month and was panned universally by critics, including Elder-Geek. The studio still has the sequel to the project, Tony Hawk: Shred, which is due out later this month.
“It is always difficult to let hard-working and valued employees go. Robomodo has retained all of the company’s directors and leads, along with other staff members,” Josh Tui, Robomodo President confirmed via official statement, “All are busy working on future projects and ideas, which will become the innovative games of tomorrow. We hope to bring back some of our team as we ramp up on our next projects.”
