Another round of layoffs at EVE Online dev CCP Games

Following the cancellation of MMO World of Darkness, CCP Games has now held another round of layoffs, with dozens of staffers made redundant. CCP laid off 15 at its Atlanta studio late last year, and then made the decision to completely can World of Darkness several months later, along with another round of layoffs. Now Polygon reports that 49 more employees have been let go, this time at its Icelandic offices. "As part of our strategy to focus on the EVE Universe, today CCP conducted a restructuring that resulted in the layoff of 49 people in our publishing organization," said a CCP representative. "Though it is hard to say goodbye to our friends and family, this action concludes the process we started several months ago," the statement adds. "CCP has provided severance packages and job placement assistance for those affected." The studio added that "EVE Online, EVE: Valkyrie, DUST 514 and 'Project Legion' have not been impacted by the restructuring. An in-depth investigation this morning revealed that much of the reasoning behind the shutdown of World of Darkness was to do with poor upper management, and lots of toing and froing between World of Darkness and EVE Online.
