Trion Layoffs

Trion has laid off a number of the developers of RIFT, their MMORPG, reports Gamasutra. They say they learned this from one of the impacted former employees who tells them as much as a third of the team, about 40, have been let go, including artists and designers. They have a confirmation of the moves from Trion, saying they are "in response to market conditions, product timelines and the natural evolution of our company."

They did just release an expansion -- so probably less of a team required at that point. Similar to other post launch layoffs recently.

I'm actually considering picking it up and trying a three month stint again (been about a year off).
