No matter how inevitable the closing of 38 Studios and Big Huge Games may have seemed following their much-publicized financial troubles over the last week, there’s no denying that it was like a punch in the gut for the games industry. Which is why it’s refreshing to see the rest of said gut-punched industry rally around its wounded and help them find work.
Social media sites have been invaluable for offering aid: hashtag #38jobs is a nationally trending topic, and a Facebook group titled 38Jobs is playing host to a number of job openings from various studios. Freelance games journalist Alex Rubens has gone above and beyond, though. He compiled all those and many more openings into a massive Google Doc, which is open to everyone and currently contains positions with Bungie, Rockstar, Irrational Games, Insomniac, and EA, just to name a few.
To all the people who were laid off as part of this awful situation: my deepest condolences, and I hope you all find new jobs soon. Thanks for such an awesome game. And to the rest of the industry: you all rule.
