ÂAbout 80 percent or 90 percent of the people weÂve added in the past few months have been from 38 and Bioware. Two months ago we had a staff of 60, and now weÂre at just over 100,Â lead class designer Dave Williams told PC Gamer at gamescom.
Williams explained that Red 5 spent almost a month recruiting, and managed to pick up some great MMO developer talent from the two studios. So while layoffs are never a good thing, the timing in this case seems to have worked out great for Red 5.
