CCP Games has announced that forty-nine jobs have been lost in a restructuring move. According to GamesIndustry.biz (via Polygon), the layoffs are part of CCP's continuing focus on the EVE Universe and the jobs lost came from the publishing areas of the company and will not affect any of the games currently in development.
"As part of our strategy to focus on the EVE Universe, today CCP conducted a restructuring that resulted in the layoff of 49 people in our publishing organisation," the company told GamesIndustry International in a statement.
"Though it is hard to say goodbye to our friends and family, this action concludes the process we started several months ago. CCP has provided severance packages and job placement assistance for those affected. Development teams and plans for EVE Online, EVE: Valkyrie, DUST 514, and 'Project Legion' are not impacted by the restructuring."
