Computer game maker Activision Blizzard is apparently cutting jobs in El Segundo and Los Angeles, according to a filing with the California Employment Development Department. According to layoff filings, required in California of certain companies, Activision Blizzard is looking to lay off 4 employees in El Segudno, and 23 employees in Los Angeles on December 19th. California requires companies to give employees at least 60 day notice of mass layoffs. A spokesperson for Activision Blizzard did not respond to requests for comment on the public filings. Fellow computer game makers Electronic Arts and THQ have both announced layoffs in recent months as the industry has felt the effects of a slowing economy.
