Rovio Lays off Nearly 40 Percent of Its Staff

The people behind Angry Birds games takes yet another Danone. For less than a year ago, fired the 110 employees, now smoking 260.

Rovio, the company behind which is the otherwise popular Angry Birds game, seem to have a hard time keeping the company running smoothly with the existing number of employees. They have just announced that they have to fire 260 persons, equivalent to 38 percent of the total staff.

For less than a year ago, in October 2014, also a combustion Rovio had round where it went out over 110 employees. Back at the end of 2013, the company had 800 employees.

Rovio has just launched Angry Birds 2 which has been downloaded almost 50 million times worldwide. But to get users to install the game is only the first step, then they must be cajoled to buy content in the game for real money. In the United States managed Angry Birds two to land on a 42. space in the most profitable games when it was launched, not a totally bad location, but far from familiar titles like Game of War, Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga.

Angry Birds is apparently not designed in a way so that it will be equally interesting for users to throw money after the game, in a degree which other types of games.

Rovio has offices in Stockholm, London, New York, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo-it involves many employees and Angry Birds 2 has therefore not been the attraction they had hoped for.

However, Rovio hope that the planned 3D film that was supposed to hit the market in may 2016 can pull the company back on track. The 260 jobs are to be cut, frames according to Rovio over the entire organization, except only the teams working on the film.
