Development of Microsoft Flight stopped as staff laid off

Microsoft makes heavy cuts at Vancouver development studio

Posted on
Microsoft has laid off about 35 people at its Vancouver studio, ending development of Microsoft Flight and the Kinect interactive TV game, reports GI.

The news was originally posted on a
Facebook page for Vancouver innovators.

Microsoft also issued a comment on the story, saying: "..this decision was the result of the natural ebb and flow of our portfolio management. Many factors were considered in the difficult decision to stop development on Microsoft Flight and Project Columbia, but we feel it will help us better align with our long-term goals and development plans."

The city has seen a number of game studio layoffs and closures in recent months, including Radical Entertainment, Capcom Vancouver and Rockstar Vancouver.
