Wednesday Gaming – More Lay-Offs, AI in Foamstars and MORE!

Catch up on the latest news, rumours and announcements from the world of video games, tech and entertainment:

– Lost Boys Interactive, owned by Gearbox Studios and a member of the Embracer Group, has laid off “a sizeable portion” of its workforce, according to former producer Jared Pace.

– Per an official statement from Lost Boys Interactive, they “made the difficult decision to restructure our studio to ensure we can succeed in spite of headwinds facing the industry right now. Unfortunately, this does mean we will separate from some of our team members and we’re working closely with those affected. We … will provide support and assistance through this transition to those leaving.”

– According to Square Enix president Takashi Kiryu, their 4v4 shooting game “Foamstars” only contains “0.01% or even less” AI content, which was used to create the in-game album covers.

– In a Twitch livestream, actress Tatiana Maslany says that it’s unlikely that Disnley will greenlight a second season of “She-Hulk”, as the first season apparently went over its rumoured $225-million budget.
