High Voltage lays off staff

Conduit developer scales back.

High Voltage Software, developer of Wii shooter The Conduit, has let 25 staff go, IGN reports.

"I can confirm that High Voltage Software has reduced some of our staffing based on our current production requirements and predictions of what is needed for the remainder of 2010," a spokesperson said.

High Voltage is currently working on The Conduit 2 for Wii as well as co-op monster mash The Grinder, which has been shown as a first-person shooter on Wii and a third-person action game on PS3 and Xbox 360.

It released the deeply unimpressive fighting game Tournament of Legends on Wii last month. Much-hyped for its graphics technology, The Conduit wasn't all that much better, to be honest.
