Razer's job cuts signal a shift away from mobile

Razer's decision to close its game store wasn't its only cost-cutting measure. In a statement to Droid Life, it confirmed that it laid off "some" workers and moved others to "new projects." It still saw "great opportunities" in mobile hardware and software, and had "new exciting mobile projects" in the pipeline, but it wasn't clear whether there was a future for the company's handsets beyond the Razer Phone 2. An earlier tip to DL claimed that Razer had let go of most of the team devoted to mobile devices and hardware engineering, and that a third Razer Phone had been scrapped.
