"Rumors have been circulating the past few days that Cloud Imperium
Games, the parent company of Roberts Space Industries and the makers of Star Citizen, is laying off staff. But in a statement provided to Polygon, CIG says things are all going according to plan."
"Cloud Imperium Games continues to grow its development team across CIG's multiple studios," the statement reads. ...."
"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."
This basically means Erin Roberts - Chris Roberts brother and Global Production Head manager for Star Citizen - is reorganizing the company. While Chris Roberts - most famous for his creative and visionary approach to games - has been criticised for his management style, Erin Roberts is well known and respected as an efficient game industry lead manager. IMHO together they form a very good team.
