Immortals Of Aveum Dev Reportedly Furloughs A Significant Portion Of Its Staff

Immortals of Aveum developer Ascendant Studios has reportedly furloughed a large portion of its staff, after the game failed to set tills alight following its launch last summer.

While the company hasn’t made any official announcement on the situation, ex-staff member Kris Morness brought things to light in a LinkedIn post, which was later baked up by Polygon reporter Nicole Carpenter, who stated that a “large portion” of Ascendant Studios’ staff were now on furlough.
