Volition lays off 30 employees following Agents of Mayhem release

The sad reality of a poorly received video game release has come: Volition, Champaign’s video game developer in Downtown Champaign, will be laying off “30 employees” — including their GM Dan Cermak. All of the information about the layoffs is over at Kotaku — which discusses how Agents of Mayhem was poorly recieved and sales were not what they had hoped.

We recently featured the new game prior to its release, which you can read here.

On a personal note, I’d like to say here that Dan Cermak is one of the best and brightest in the community — he will be missed as the GM of that company — but surely he will land elsewhere soon.
