He wasn't laid of, pretty sure his post explains he decided to leave of his own accord, dark times for PS2 though since they lost 2 of the main people guiding the game (Higby and David Carey).

Ryan Elam (CodeForge) has also confirmed he chose to leave by own choice. But on his facebook he tells there's been some layoffs..

QuoteI've been fortunate enough to already have lots of folks contacting me, but as you may know there were some unfortunate layoffs today at Daybreak, and I could use more contacts! If you are looking for talented folk for your game company, I'd love to introduce you to some. Let me know, and let's get them quickly back on their feet.

There's been a lot of layoffs and leavers over the last week. When an investment company takes over, they want profits to rise and return on investment straight away and that's not necessarily a good thing in gaming.
