The other day, several former employees of Cloud Imperium Games (CIG) reported that the authors of Star Citizen are conducting mass layoffs. A studio representative in a media commentary called their statements a lie.
According to him, on the contrary, there are more people in CIG. This year, the number of employees has increased from 900 to 1100 people thanks to both the hiring of additional developers and the purchase of the Canadian studio Turbulent.
Recall that one of the former employees of CIG also claimed that the authors of Star Citizen spend too much money on the design of offices, as a result of which the studio had financial problems. The representative of CIG did not comment on this statement.
