NCsoft HQ based in Austim is having 70 people less since the company started the restructure.
The rumors that were around NCsoft stated that around 75% of the QA testers and 90% of the tech staff were to be laid off. NCsoft didn’t approved or denied these rumors.
But what we found from the official statement is this :
“NCsoft’s Austin business has announced an immediate restructuring within its organisation 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.”
“NCsoft has reduced its 300 person workforce in Austin by approximately 70 people,” the company statement continued.
“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.”
NCsoft latest project is another MMOG named Tabula Rasa. Tabula Rasa is a intergalactic adventure where any soldier has the ability to significantly impact the course of battle.
