While it’s unclear what exactly this means for Toys for Bob moving forward, Windows Central’s Jez Corden has already “got confirmation that Toys for Bob is not closing down“. Apart from employees impacted, it’s claimed the remaining team is being reassigned to remote work.
Fellow Activision (and California) developer Sledgehammer Games (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3) has also been impacted by layoffs in recent times, with 76 workers affected.
