Eight People Laid Off From Irrational Games, BioShock Infinite DLC Unaffected

Not affecting the development of parts 1 and 2 of the Burial at Sea DLC for BioShock Infinite, Irrational Games has announced through a statement (via Kotaku) that 8 members of their team have been let go:

In an effort to streamline our processes I am sad to confirm that we let go a total of 8 employees today. Any studio’s greatest asset is the group of people that make up the whole, and as such it was extremely hard to make this decision and there is never a good time for this to happen. As co-workers and friends, we wish them the very best.

In happier BioShock-related news, Toy Columbia has been added to Disney Infinity for free, and you can see it as part of this video showing off the latest featured Toy Boxes:
