OP  12/11/13 4:01:06 PM#1

World of Darkness fans may end up having to wait longer for the game to see the light of day thanks to a round of layoffs at the CCP Games-Atlanta (USA) office. Fifteen employees have been let go according to a statement from CCP's Senior PR Specialist Ned Coker.

CCP today made strategic adjustments to the staffing on the team working on the World of Darkness project in Atlanta that resulted in the elimination of approximately 15 positions at the company.  The change was due to our evaluation of the game’s design and ongoing development needs.  While this was a difficult decision, CCP remains committed to the franchise and our promise to make a compelling, rich, and deep World of Darkness experience.

Made a thread about this a few mins ago (Feel free to delete it mod's it's saying exactly the same thing). So harsh firing people just before Christmas. Hope those involved find some new jobs soon.

Strategic adjustment.... Why do I picture someone getting kicked in the face while they cling to a raft that's starting to sink.

This game was seriously one of the few MMOs I was truly looking forward to, as we don't actually have very many if any dark, vampire/werewolf type games in the MMO genre. If they screw this up, it will be an epic failure. I can't understand how a company would continue to work on a sandbox of trolls(EVE Online) instead of getting this game up and running. Makes no sense.

Seems my interpretation of past events was pretty spot on. They obviously were looking for ways to make more money back during Monoclegate. Instead they let their players dictate their business plans.

They were also looking to bring new untapped players into EVE with their direction with WIS, again they let their current players dictate their future business plans. I'm sure that's all fine and good for their current audience, however for them and everyone looking forward to WOD? Not so much.

I worry about the direction CCP is going.  I don't think releasing DUST as a PS-only game was a very bright idea and from what I can see, it has not generated the kind of revenue nor brought in the new players to Eve they had hoped.

If I was running CCP, I would create a copy of Eve and launch it on a second set of servers.  I would change the rules of the game to make it less brutal: auto contracts to prevent scams, no gate camps in empire, no can flipping and other things to attract more non-pvp-focused people into the game.  It could be launched as a "first-step" to Eve and as people play there and learn to love the game, they would eventually move into the original servers where the real action is.  The beauty is, it would take very little development effort since they can use the current game and only change the rules a bit.  It would have more of a chance to bring in revenue than DUST and would be much cheaper and faster to launch than WoD.

That response makes it seem like firing 15 people would have no effect on the progression of the game. Otherwise, why would you fire people which would in turn delay the launch date? There was no mention that the cutbacks were due to financial reasons.

Because their only successful venture is called EVE Online, it is unique in the gaming world, especially the MMO scene which likes to copy the well known sandbox milking cow.

EVE is their flagship and main money sink , their 2nd venture WOD isnt even Live yet -probably never will- and their 3rd -DUST- is a massive failure so far.

So yes, why shouldn't they ditch EVE Online as they have so many other good titles to look after?

Shouldn't that "flagship" be making enough money to keep their employees?  Something about that flagship or its business model is making it less profitable than they expected.  Even heartless companies hate firing people during the Holidays, if not for reasons of conscience, then for public relations and image.

How committed can you be if you remove a good chunk of your team.

My thought is that you either make the game or you don't.

sigh.
