Robomodo has just lost 30 employees according to sources with another 30 to have their fate decided soon by Activision, as Tony Hawk is taken away.

Tony Hawk: Shred is the studio's last entry in the series apparently after Ride and its peripheral board failed to wow. They're "busy" with work still.
