Spillbransjen kan være tøff og utilgivelig i blant, og vi har nok en gang fått høre om nedskjæringer. Denne gangen er det Carbine Studios, skaperen av det lekne MMO-eventyret Wildstar, som leverer dårlige nyheter. De er nå nødt til å si opp ansatte etter at de gir opp å slippe spillet i Kina, i tillegg til at overgangen fra abonnement til gratis har satt sine spor. Her er hva de selv skriver i pressemeldingen:
"Earlier this morning, Carbine Studios completed a reorganization of its operating structure. Moving forward, the studio will focus on operating and updating WildStar as a live game in the US and Europe. As part of this change, the studio has canceled its plans to bring WildStar to China.
Unfortunately, as a result of these changes, we've had to reduce staff. These cuts are directly tied to WildStar's evolution from a product in development to a live title, to the cancelation of work to bring WildStar to China, and to the overall performance of WildStar since launch in 2014.
These kinds of decisions are exceptionally difficult. The talented and passionate professionals who are impacted by these cuts have been valuable team members and respected colleagues. We wish everyone well for the future and will be providing severance and employment search assistance.
As for WildStar, we remain committed to the game. Over the next few weeks and months we will deliver a significant update to the game, kick off a variety of community events, and continue our work on new content that we will talk more about in the near future.
