The video game industry seems to be in a difficult moment, due to the fact that layoffs have not gone unnoticed, something that was seen a few days ago at large development companies like Naughty Dog. And now the case has become more serious Biowarewho got rid of some workers, and on top of that with compensation that these people found unfair.
As reported by the media, a group of seven ex-employees has launched a lawsuit against the brand, and it is so that people who are fired have more extensive benefits in terms of auxiliary pay. Dr said that they have been treated Bioware There has to be something unreasonable and it will be much worse than other companies.
Even those who represent these people, Orobek Law Office, did not follow Canada’s prescribed law on layoffs, stating that they must pay one month’s severance pay every year they worked for any company. And it has been said that Bioware That part didn’t follow, since there are fewer days according to what the fired people said.
Here is one of the testimonies:
In light of the many recent industry layoffs and Bioware’s NDAs preventing us from displaying recent Dragon Age: Dreadwolf works in our portfolios, we are very concerned about the difficulty many of us are having finding work. As the holiday season approaches.
While we continue to support the game we’ve worked so hard for, and our colleagues who continue to do so, we struggle to understand why BioWare is changing us during these challenging times.
It is worth mentioning that there are many changes in this company, as they are currently quite busy with the development of the next part of the franchise. Widespread influence and more dragon age. So it doesn’t make sense to fire people, unless more resources are needed to keep them in the title, and to make that happen a cut must be made in a position that may not be a good fit.

Editor’s note: It seems cruel of companies to fire as the holidays approach, but perhaps there are financial issues beyond comprehension. Of course, they must respect the months of compensation that former employees are entitled to.
