Faxion Online Team Layoffs

Layoffs have struck True Studios, developer of free-to-play MMORPG Faxion Online, reports Gamasutra, saying they've confirmed this with Don Choi, VP of UTV Ignition's online division, who tells them a "fraction" of the staff were laid off, though they also quote one of the affected staff saying that a majority of the employees at the Austin, TX-based studio were let go. Despite the layoffs, Choi says Faxion Online "will continue to run and be updated frequently."

9/10ths is a fraction, right? Meaningless PR-speak.

I'm a big fan of using the english language and its quirks to my benefit, and it's evil...

So ya, a 'fraction' of the staff... They're implying it's small, but 1/1, or even if you prefer 20/22, is a fraction : )

As for the game, I don't remember it, but it's f2p, so I likely would have ignored any other announcements regarding it... I love massives, and I'm not currently playing one, but I have no NEED to, so I'll wait for the ones I am interested in (mostly GW2).

Ignition has been shedding staff left and right lately. They must not be doing very well.

Startup game studio making mmo = doomed to fail unless you got some mighty powerful investors or publisher support.
