NCSoft Hit With More Layoffs

As if NCSoft hasn’t had enough trouble with staff cuts this year, Polygon is reporting that the company has had to layoff “around 60” employees today. According to a statement released by NCSoft, this has affected all their branches except for ArenaNet.

 

However, a source within Carbine Studios is saying that most of the layoffs affected the studio. The studio had 60 employees cut from their teams across all levels and others weren’t affected near as much.

Today we announced a restructuring of key operations within NC West. As a result of this restructuring, we are implementing staff reductions across our Western operations with the exclusion of ArenaNet. While decisions like this are always hard, they are necessary as we begin the implementation of a new strategy designed to strengthen our footing as a leader in global entertainment.

Moving forward, we will continue to focus on our core development capabilities and the intellectual properties (WildStar, Aion, Lineage, and Guild Wars franchises) that have made NCSOFT what it is today. However, we are looking to move into new business segments like mobile and tablet games as well as explore emerging technologies.

Again, the decision to reduce staff was not an easy one, and we sincerely wish everyone well in their next endeavors.
