Wayfinder Developer Airship Syndicate Is The Latest Studio To Be Hit By Layoffs

Airship Syndicate has been hit with layoffs. The developer of Wayfinder, Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and A Ruined King: A League of Legends Story will lose 12 employees.

Polygon’s Nicole Carpenter spoke with President Ryan Stefanelli and CEO Joe Madureira, who confirmed the layoff and executive pay cuts.

As a reminder, no other executive in this industry has reduced their salary to save jobs. We live in a world where comic villains run video game companies.

“This decision was made to ensure that Airship Syndicate can continue to operate and deliver great experiences,” a rep tells me. It’s not often you see execs taking pay cuts,” a representative for Airship Syndicate said.

Last November, Digital Extremes divested from Wayfinder while also laying off 30 people.
