Obsidian has been hit by lay-offs, affecting both a future title and one currently in development.

Reports from Obsidian's forums indicate several employees were laid off by the company today. An anonymous informant told Joystiq that it could be between 20 to 30 employees, including one person who was only on their second day of the job.

Some of the layoffs come from the team currently working on South Park: The Game.

Others were working on an unannounced title slated for the next generation of systems that was codenamed 'Project North Carolina'. As a result, the title has been cancelled.

Last month Obsidian suggested launching a Kickstarter campaign for one of its classic franchises, after Double Fine's success.

South Park: The Game will be available later this year on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
