Silicon Knights confirms layoffs, working on 'one of its most requested titles'

Silicon Knights, developer of X-Men Destiny and Too Human, has confirmed sizable layoffs. The Canadian studio has let go of 45 employees, or slightly more than half of the team. This is a smaller figure than rumored yesterday, but is still a significant cut.
