Ready At Dawn lays off 13 staff

"These are the woes of being indie."

God of War: Ghost of Sparta developer Ready At Dawn has had to let 13 people go due to a painful overlap between projects.

That's according to the official website where an unsigned update explained the situation.

"Most days we feel privileged to do what we do. Some days not so much. Today just plain sucks," it said.

"We've spent the majority of our time at RAD hiring the best and most talented people to join our team. Today, we had to let go of 13 of these people because we simply couldn't keep them on board while one project finishes and another ramps up. Unfortunately, these are the woes of being independent...

"It sucks. There are no other words for it."

The developer said it wished its former staff the best, but didn't offer any updates on the situation elsewhere at the studio, which has been responsible for a number of high-profile PSP titles including Daxter and God of War: Chains of Olympus.

Ready At Dawn also worked on the Wii port of phenomenal Capcom RPG Okami.
