Blackbird Interactive Cuts Back on Projects and Staff Amid Shift to Homeworld 3

01 Sep 2023



The game developer, Blackbird Interactive, known for its ongoing development of the strategy game Homeworld 3, recently confirmed the termination of over 40 staff members following the cancellation of multiple projects. James Marshall, a technical artist at the company, first intimated the news through a LinkedIn post, after which IGN confirmed the layoff of 41 employees. 

Despite these workforce cuts, it is speculated that Homeworld 3's production will not face any hurdles. However, it certainly paints a grim picture for the gaming industry as job losses appear to be on the rise this year.
