In a bit of bad yet strange news, Eat Sleep Play have laid off eight employees just a week before Twisted Metal is to hit store shelves. The studio still has 26 employees and will shift its focus its attention to developing games for Apple’s iOS platform. Co-founder Scott Campbell called the move “pretty exciting” and looks forward to “reaching a lot more people.”

Furthermore, David Jaffe has also left the company, with people speculating that he would be looking towards the casual market as well. He took to Twitter to clarify that he has “zero plans to make games like FARMVILLE and ANGRY BIRDS” and that he’s “still on TM along with ESP for the next months as we launch it and balance it in real time.” As for his post-Twisted Metal plans, he tweeted that “I will be opening a game studio here in San Diego because I really miss internal game development.”
