The move will eliminate 97 jobs at the Eugene, Oregon studio. Responsibility for the Tribes
franchise, as well as other Dynamix projects, will be transferred to Sierra’s Bellevue, Washington headquarters. Changes are also being made in Sierra’s corporate structure, with the elimination of 148 non-development positions. The moves are intended to better integrate Sierra into the larger Vivendi Universal Interactive structure. "While any reorganization involving staff reductions is difficult, there is no doubt that this is the right thing to do for the business," said Sierra President Michael Ryder.
