NCsoft Seattle "Realignment"

PC Gamer has word on a shakeup at NCsoft's Seattle offices after contacting the Guild Wars 2 publisher to follow up on anonymous rumors that the Seattle studio had closed. The company denied the closure, but does admit that jobs have been lost there as the result of a "realignment," though the extent of this is not known at this point, nor is it clear how, if at all, this will impact Guild Wars 2. "NCsoft is realigning internal publishing resources to better suit the needs of our game development studios," PR Director Lincoln Davis told them. "As a result of the realignment, several employees and contract positions were affected. This was a very tough decision to make and wish the best for all NCsoft employees in their next ventures."

I don't know about decline(with no subscription I doubt they care too deeply). The game sure didn't sell nearly as well as you would think with all the hype the game was getting though. People declaring it the death of the subscription mmo but it looks like ones without one aren't that much more popular.

It sold over 5 million copies already and has a pretty stable ongoing revenue stream in the shop. If that's not a success I don't know what is. Publishers always lay off post release. It's not the second coming of WOW and was never intended to be. The player base tends to rise and fall with major releases of other games, its been a busy year.

Spoken like a tru fanboi Dades! Filled with false information any google search will uncover, and peppering it with useless bits of "busy years and player bases". All after being proved, yet again, how horribly wrong you were about most things gaming.

Aren't you supposed to be "holding over" still in Torchlight 2? I recall your rabidness for that as well, spitting forum daggers for anyone who spoke ill of your perceived all nighters while waiting patiently for grim dawn while denouncing POE.
