Source says High Voltage lays off 20-30

A “trusted” source speaking with gaming blog Joystiq says High Voltage Software — the folks responsible for The Conduit and its forthcoming sequel — have sent 20-30 staffers packing.

The source says his or her initial tally of 20-30 might be conservative, and the developer damage could be substantially heftier.

The Conduit was a fun, refreshing Wii title, but the studio’s follow-up, Tournament of Legends, was largely rubbish. Here’s to hoping the remaining staff can make Conduit 2 a strong follow-up to a good original.
