PopCap Hit with Layoffs

PopCap has been hit with a round of layoffs.

According to Joystiq, 50 people were let go at the Seattle studio. Internationally, PopCap Dublin was closed and the Shanghai studio was “shrunk.”

“We’ve been able to invest in creative new games like Peggle and Plants vs. Zombies because we had a high profit business. That business is challenged, and if we don’t adapt, we won’t be able to invest in new IP,” PopCap co-founder John Vechey wrote. “That sounds harsh – but if we don’t stay in business, no more plants, zombies, jewels, frogs or worms.”
