UPDATE: We have received the following statement from Chris Lee, Publishing VP at En Masse:
“Today, we had to let go of some of the great talent at En Masse Entertainment. While a tough decision, it was necessary as we prepare for the next chapter of our business. TERA has been a great launch for us, and we are committed to our loyal players. We’re taking measures to align the needs of our business to continue supporting TERA and preparing for our future. We are working with those affected by this transition, including offering assistance on new prospects within the industry/area. If there are companies who are looking for talented people with publishing experience, please send an email with the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
According to a Twitter post by En Masse's Evan Berman, layoffs are underway at the TERA publishers. We are reaching out to Mr. Berman for more comments and will keep you posted as the story develops.
Evan Berman is "Scapes" a Community Manager for En Masse, and it's unclear how many people have been effected.
@scapes - Layoffs have occurred at En Masse. I was hit.
