Unity's AI tool Muse first look... well.. not the most impressive look honestly, neither in pricing structure or functionality. But interesting they are working in that direction and I am sure it will improve over time.

So the start of 2024 seems to be pretty rough for game jobs! Yikes!
The PlayStation community means everything to us, so I felt it was important to update you on a difficult day at our company. We have made the extremely hard decision to announce our plan to commence a reduction of our overall headcount globally by about 8% or about 900 people, subject to local law and consultation processes. Employees across the globe, including our studios, are impacted.

Electronic Arts has announced that it, too, is undergoing mass layoffs, with plans to let go 5% of its total global staff, or roughly 670 individuals.

Nordisk Games owned Supermassive is 'reorganizing'.

Embacer just sold Saber Interactive back to itself for $500M USD.
Saber Interactive has the North Jutland based 3D Realms and Slipgate Ironworks under it's wing. Actual ownership is registered with Embracer. How this will affect our Jutland friends in the near and long term is to be seen, hope it will be good for them! :)

Also pretty sure Saber will be fine. They are poised to release (among others) Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 in September this year. Which I am pretty sure will be a success. Though not expecting it to take the crown from Helldivers 2.

So a little update on the whole union thing going on in Denmark. I mentioned IDA was working on an separate initiative.
Which was indeed true! Found out it's called IDA Gamedev.

And the focus is more about community building/corporate branding of sorts rather than any kind of dedicated union initiative. So a bit different with overlaps.

Participation is free and you can read more about it here:
https://english.ida.dk/ida-gamedev
https://ida.dk/viden-og-netvaerk/netvae ... da-gamedev

There are some upcoming community meetings here:

IDA Conference, København V
