Unfortunately this is the news that no one wants to hear. As of today, it seems that PopCap Games have laid off roughly 50 employees from their Seattle studio. While their international offices in Dublin and Shanghi have completely shut down as well.
PopCap games is known for their extremely popular games, such as: Bejeweled, Peggle, and Plants Vs. Zombies.
Oddly enough, PopCap Games just announced yesterday that Plants Vs. Zombies 2 which is due for a late spring 2013 launch.
Our thoughts go out to those affected by these layoffs and hope that these amazing people land on their feet in a new studio soon!
