With rumors that Cloud Imperium Games, the parent company of Roberts Space Industries and the creators of Star Citizen, were laying off staff, the company has come out squashing those reports.




CIG has said that everything is fine and that everything is going well. A statement from CIG reads: "Cloud Imperium Games continues to grow its development team across CIG's multiple studios. Each of our four offices is being streamlined to focus on specific parts of Star Citizen which will allow for a more efficient and accelerated completion of the game".


With the delays surrounding the first-person shooter module of the game, Star Marine, these rumors felt like they had some weight to them. The statement continued: "As we announced in June with the appointment of Erin Roberts as Global Production Head we have been reviewing how to optimize our development process. As a result we are moving some jobs and eliminating some redundant positions between some of our offices, as well as increasing them in others. The net result over the next few months will actually be an increase in our global internal employee base".
