NCsoft: 20% Layoffs in Austin

NCsoft: 20% Layoffs in Austin - MMORPG.com

According to a statement made on the Lineage II forums, NCSoft has laid off roughly 20% of the employees at the NCSoft Austin studio. We are told that this will not effect the schedules of the games that are currently in development:

 

NCsoft’s Austin business has announced an immediate restructuring within its organization that included the difficult task of reducing members of its workforce. The online games industry is one that is continually changing with the scaling up and down of business based on product launches and product development schedules. Over the past two and a half years NCsoft has launched six major titles into the North American market and has grown with each title launch. As the company continues to grow its live products and prepares its next set of major online game releases for later in 2006 and 2007, the company sees a slowdown in its launch pattern and the need to streamline its business. For this reason, NCsoft has reduced its 300 person workforce in Austin by approximately 70 people to accommodate this change. This decision has no impact on the schedules of any projects currently in development and service to NCsoft’s current games will continue without interruption.
