Guild Wars II publisher NCsoft has, unfortunately, had to issue a series of layoffs to emplyees at its Seattle Washington headquarters. Calling it a “realigning” of their internal publishing resources, NCsoft’s PR Director Lincoln Davis said that it was a very tough decision to make but that it will better suit the needs of their game development studios. Davis went on to say that he wishes the best for all former employees in their next ventures.
No games were mentioned in Davis’s statement. As of now, it is unclear as to whether or not this will affect the Development of Guilt Wars II, or any other NCsoft products and projects.
We will bring you more information on the layoffs and restructuring of NCsoft as it becomes available.
