‘Left 4 Dead’ zombies aren’t the only casualties coming from Valve these days.

Valve has begun laying off several of their employees. News on the layoffs first broke via the Twitter account of engineer Jeri Ellsworth, who wrote “yup. Got fired today. Time for new exciting projects.”


According to a report from Gamasutra, Ellsworth is one of several employees let go today as part of a “great cleansing” and “large decisions” within the company, and the layoffs were based on changes in the company rather than performance issues.


The exact number is unknown, but the number as of now is rumored to be 25. The layoffs are said to have hit multiple departments including hardware and Android development.
