LucasArts Hit By Another Round of Layoffs

Joystiq has received confirmation from LucasArts that the company has made a "minor adjustment in staffing" in the form of some company layoffs today. The information came via a tweet by developer George Broussard (#georgeb3dr) earlier today.

Broussard asserts in a subsequent tweet that those laid off "come from a team working on an unannounced game," though few specifics have been confirmed by LucasArts.

"We remain committed to our internal studio -- and to fostering relationships with trusted external partners -- in order to deliver quality games that amaze and inspire fans," a company representative told Joystiq.

Today's layoffs mark the second time LucasArts has cut staff in the latter half of 2010. Back in September, the company shed employees, some of whom were rumored to be members of The Force Unleashed 2 development team.
