Icarus Studios Restructures Company [Updated]

Posted by Michael Bitton on Apr 30, 2010  | Comments

Icarus Studios Restructures Company [Updated] - Fallen Earth - MMORPG.com

Icarus Studios CEO James Hettinger has announced the restructure of the company's resources and staffing today.

Get the full details below:

“While this is a challenging step for us,” said Hettinger, “the steps were taken to maintain the growth, continued development and profitability of Fallen Earth.”

As a result of today’s reorganization and in an effort to maintain development, the combined companies will support core members of staff for ongoing customer service and continued development of Fallen Earth and company projects.

Team leads are continuing production and development on Fallen Earth Blood Sports Patch 1.4, scheduled for release on May 7. Community support and scheduled events, such as Slots Night, will continue as announced.

It sounds like everything is still on track, so we aren't too sure how these changes will affect players just yet.

Visit the official Fallen Earth website for more information on the game.

UPDATE: Fallen Earth Marketing Manager Jessica Orr offered us a comment regarding today's developments:

Our team will continue the development and production of Fallen Earth and the upcoming Blood Sports Content Patch 1.4. We will keep a solid customer support base, and production is on schedule. Players should notice little if any change in the game’s status.

UPDATE 2:  Additional information was revealed by Fallen Earth's Circatrix on the official Fallen Earth forums:

Hi all. Thanks for your questions and for your interest in what's going on with the company. Some of you who know staff understand that this was a difficult step for us. As of today, there are 28 core staff members plus customer support staff and GMs. We believe in our product--we know we have a great game, and we have an amazing community. None of this will change. We are on time for Blood Sports Patch 1.4 next Friday, and we are on schedule for subsequent content updates. The decisions made today regarding staff are for the general health of the company and the game as a whole, and we don't anticipate any changes on the player side of things. Servers are up, customer support and GM guidance are still in place, and our production schedule is still on target. We appreciate your support and dedication to us personally, to our team, and to Fallen Earth.
