Large-scale redundancy plan causes strike.
Developer of Test Drive Unlimited 2 has gone on a "symbolic day strike" after accusing Atari of mismanagement.
"For several years we are witnessing multiple leader changes at its head, they did not hesitate to get rich despite financial difficulties," writes an employee of Eden Games in a statement to Gamasutra. "Atari does not play the game of negotiations with employee representatives on the redundancy plan measures. Employee representatives of Eden until now have been extremely collaborative, respecting the very tight deadlines of the redundancy plan."
This statement comes in response to a major redundancy plan that will see 51 out of Eden's 80 employees lose their job.
Eden hope the day strike will bring about changes to the current redundancy plan and ensure "an employee of Eden Games is compensated the same way as an employee of Atari".
Atari still haven't commented on the strike and it's not clear whether this down-sizing will have an effect on the future of the Test Drive Unlimited series.
