Welcome to MMORPG.com where questions are often answered with other questions.


To be successful to the game company, a game must:

1. earn the company a profit
2. not result in numerous employees getting fired


To be successful in the eyes of gamers, the game should:
1. be considered a good game by a lot of people

 Is this accurate thought?

I'm not into software development on any means but several clients and friends are.

It seems like that is a normal part of the software development process, plan it, hire a bunch of people to do it, release it, lay them off, they go to another company for the next project?

Is that normal?

And if so why would mmo's be different?

Quit worrying about other players in a game and just play.

I guess you could argue that an mmo is never finished so if it's a success it's making enough money to keep all those people working on content.

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.

For me its the retention. If a company is keeping its players around then they are successful as a business; if a game is keepings its players around it also means its fun, so a success in the gamers eyes. 

"In the immediate future, we have this one, and then we’ve got another one that is actually going to be – so we’re going to have, what we want to do, is in January, what we’re targeting to do, this may or may not happen, so you can’t hold me to it. But what we’re targeting to do, is have a fun anniversary to the Ilum shenanigans that happened. An alien race might invade, and they might crash into Ilum and there might be some new activities that happen on the planet." ~Gabe Amatangelo

No it is not. Layoffs are indicative of a game launch that does not meet expectations.


When big layoffs occurred by game makers in the last few years, some people claimed it was normal. This is fallacy. If the arrangement was intentionally temporary, why wouldn't a company contract that person instead of adding them as a full time employee? The latter involves increased costs (health insurance, unemployment) and risk (getting sued).

video game company layoffs are twice the national average.

Are the fact that the servers are up and running mean its a success alone? Does it need to be a critical success? Financial?

 

I'm just trying to get a grip on what folks consider a successful game or not.

 

in my book if the game can retain a population of 1+Million players per month, its a success. note this isnt talking about Box sells. I mean players actually logging in per month to play.

Actually it's pretty common practice to use contract workers. They don't have to pay benefits or any kind of severance packages after their work is done. That is a large part of why you see people get let go shortly after the game gets finished.

Reducing staff after release isn't normal? What MMO releases are you basing that on?

If I like playing it.

There are other benchmarks, but they are pretty irrelevant to me.

Are you an investor ?

No ?

Then you're massively wrong, buddy. If a game makes profit or not doesnt matter to you at all.

When a company says they laid off or "let go" employees, they are not talking about contractors.

How many employees were fired immediately after the launch of Everquest, WoW, DaOC, SWG?

 I don't know, thats why I asked the question.

I do know that companies hire temporary workers all the time.  In my company there are currenlyt 3 temp positions being offered right now.

 What lokto stated.

Again I don't have enough experience in dev (i dont have any experience in dev) field to say one way or the other.

All I know from friends and clients is it is common in software developement to lay people off after a project is done.

 I don't know.  I don't even recall being paying attention to that back then.  They might have been, but I was different so I might not have noticed.
