Beenox studios in Quebec have not been spared from the cutbacks in the ranks of Microsoft: 29 employees lost their jobs last week.

13 Beenox workers based in Montreal also lost their jobs according to the most recent list of collective layoff notices made public by the Ministry of Employment and Social Solidarity. Microsoft refused to answer Radio-Canada's questions.

According to our information, this is the quality assurance department at Beenox which would be mainly affected by these cuts.

We learned last week that the giant Microsoft planned to cut 1,900 jobs in its video game subsidiaries Activision-Blizzard and Xbox. Beenox is a subsidiary of Activision which is based in Quebec and Montreal.
