Warner Brothers Games has cut staffing at game studios throughout the Seattle area, according to a report on Joystiq. The cuts occurred as a result of “continual review of our business operations and fluctuating market conditions,” a spokesperson tells Joystiq.

Reports surfaced last week that about 60 people were losing their jobs in the Warner Brothers Games studios, including Monolith Productions, Snowblind Studios and Surreal Software.

Monolith is the maker of the game FEAR, while Snowblind developed The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. Kirkland-based Snowblind, which was acquired by Warner Bros. in 2009, released the Lord of the Rings title last week.
