Lead Writer Cory Herndon Leaves Carbine  -

UPDATE: After reaching out to company representatives, we have received the following statement:

On March 11, Carbine Studios conducted a reorganization and staff reduction. While almost all of the staff cuts were effective immediately, a handful of the people impacted were asked to remain at Carbine for a few additional weeks in order to complete key projects.

Today, the Carbine team remains hard at work on a number of upcoming game and content updates for WildStar.

Hot on the heels of Friday's news that Mike Donatelli and Chris Behrens had left Carbine, today reveals that WildStar lead writer Cory J. Herndon has also exited the studio. Herndon revealed his departure via Twitter.

(Business) day one of my post-Carbine era. Think I'll start with editing some VO samples and preparing for phone interviews.

WildStar is set to launch soon on Steam, though it remains to be seen whether or not Carbine will be able to weather the storm of layoffs. We have reached out to the company for a statement and will update the article when it arrives.

Thanks, Volgore!
