UPDATE: According to a new post at BigDownloads.com:
As a result of this move, Lego Group is buying both the Lego Universe development team and the NetDevil offices that the team currently works in (Financial terms were not disclosed). The other NetDevil employees will be moving to another office somewhere nearby the original offices. The remaining Netdevil team members will continue to develop the browser-based online action-RPG Fortune Online, which was just announced a few weeks ago and is now in closed beta testing. The Gazillion PR rep would not comment on the status of NetDevil's long-in-development space-based MMO Jumpgate Evolution.
According to numerous trusted sources on Facebook it seems as though, at the very least, a large number of employees have been laid off at NetDevill, the company behind the perpetually in-development Jumpgate Evolution.
While we can not at this time confirm the specifics of the layoffs, nor what this means for the future of NetDevil and the games that it is / was developing, we will continue to follow this story as it progresses and bring you any updates that become available.
