Otter Media Layoffs

Updated: May 1, 2023

Last month, Otter Media announced a layoff of 10% of its staff amid a reorganization that saw it bring gaming digital network Machinima under its umbrella. The reorg happened as AT&T — the parent company of both Otter and Machinima — continues to downsize its digital properties in the wake of its Time Warner acquisition last summer.

Machinima creators and select staffers will be joining the Fullscreen network — which is another Otter property. Last month, Otter said that its direct-to-consumer brands like Rooster Teeth would be folded into its anime and geek-centric “Ellation” division alongside Machinima. However, an email addressed to Machinima creators from Fullscreen’s general manager, Bow Bryant, would seem to suggest otherwise.
