Wizards of the Coast layoffs

This is kinda gaming related so I thought I'd post...

WoTC have layed off two of its bright sparks, one was the LEAD for D&D4e...

Dave Noonan and Jonathan Tweet.. Noonan was the honcho on 4E...
Tweet worked on 3E and Ars Magica...

this from Lisa Stevens the CEO of Paizo Publishing...

Which is kinda bizarre, but from all reports 4E is not selling like 3E and 3.5E... (Probably because its too miniature oriented for the masses).

It will be interesting to see if these shoes get filled or what happens to things at WotC...

(It should be noted they did a round of layoffs just after 3E was released so this could be standard WotC/Hasbeen practice)..
