Microsoft is reportedly laying off 60 workers in Israel who were related to the development of HoloLens. The report comes from Israeli site Ynet which claims that Microsoft laid off 30 workers (under contract) while the other 30 works have been given one month to look for other jobs inside the company.

Microsoft hasn’t confirmed the report just yet, so take it with a grain of salt. However, if the report is accurate, it isn’t clear how this will affect the development of HoloLens. What’s your thoughts? Tell us in the comment section below.
