I didn't expect to read this any time soon! Humble Bundle has laid off 12 people (20% of their staff) due to being over ambitious with their previous hiring. writes Polygon.
It's not as bad as it may seem though, as the CEO did state to Polygon that they have seen "strong revenue", so it looks like things are still going pretty well for them. I'm sure the CEO is sitting in a tidy amount of money now anyway, but all companies need to do cost-cutting exercises now and then.
Hopefully they can deliver more proper Humble Indie Bundle's, but they are still hitting far short of what they used to. I wonder if it's due to them doing so many different types of bundles now that it's not as magical as it once was. It's now a very normal thing to see an indie bundle, and I personally didn't pick up the last Indie bundle due to owning all the games. I don't go rushing out to buy each bundle as they come in, when I once did as well. I imagine that's the case for quite a few people.
Thanks for the info Till.
