Quick google search showed they laid off people from both EQ2 and Vanguard in July of 2010. And according to people who recently quit Vanguard, there's one NA server and one Euro server.....and it has one developer. So you know Vanguard is basically dead in the water at this point, once it's subs drop off to non-self sustaining levels they'll can it.
MXO people, I have no idea on those folks...I would guess the team was never very big to begin with since they bought the game on it's downward spiral.
And now it makes even less sense, if they were laying people off and had all these other projects in the works especially the "a lot of unannounced projects". I think we are being bullshitted on a number of fronts.

But the monthly subscripstion is still the same!
