Martin Bruusgaard Laid Off - Secret World Legends - MMORPG.com

According to a report at Develop-Online, The Secret World Lead Designer Martin Bruusgaard has been put on "forced leave" in addition to most of his fellow employees in the Oslo, Norway office of Funcom.

This news comes on the heels of earlier 'redundancies' throughout Funcom as a result of TSW's less-than-expected sales.

He suggested that the studio’s Norway headquarters had been hit much harder than other offices as it was expensive to run, and suggested that it was “cheaper to hire someone abroad”.

“Unfortunately, I'm not with Funcom anymore,” said Bruusgaard.

“Got put on forced leave along with most of our Oslo Office, a week ago.”
