Sony attributes the staff cuts to 'normal business practice'.
Zipper Interactive, developer of the SOCOM series and MAG, has lost a number of employees in a new round of layoffs, Kotaku reports.
Sony has attributed the staff cuts to "normal business practice and a result of cutting back on production resources after the launch of two major franchises."
Sony didn't specify how many staff lost their job.
Given the development cycle of a project - ramping up staff when required - the news of losses is no massive surprise given that SOCOM 4 hit stores earlier this year.
We're more concerned as to why we haven't heard anything on a sequel to MAG yet.
