Disney cuts back at Three Melons

Gamasutra reports that Disney Interactive has cut upwards of 30 staff at Buenos Aires social studio Three Melons. While declining to confirm the number of staff affected, Disney said: “As part of our ongoing strategy to best position the Disney Interactive Media Group for success in digital media, we continually evaluate and refine our business. As part of this process we’ve made targeted layoffs within the division.” Three Melons was acquired last year by Playdom, the social studio which was itself acquired by Disney last July.
