Trion Layoffs

IGN has word on layoffs at Defiance and RIFT developer Trion Worlds, having confirmed the cuts after initially reporting this as a rumor. Their original report stated as much as 80% of the company's staff was let go, but Trion says this is "exaggerated" (though no numbers are provided as a correction), and also says reports that employees were being escorted from buildings and that some executives would not be receiving severance are "100% false." Here's Trion's official statement:

To best position Trion in a rapidly changing industry, we have reorganized our teams and are expanding our free to play offering. With Defiance, we delivered a great game that more than one million gamers registered to play and continue to enjoy. As we progress from launch to ongoing development of the game, we are adjusting our staffing levels to deliver new content and improved features. RIFT, and our other titles in development, were unaffected by these changes. We are very much looking forward to the free to play release of RIFT and are excited by the other new titles currently in development.

Lol! And thy were just saying what a huge success Defiance was. I knew they were full of shit. Yeah, 1 million registered to try the beta and 100 sales. Rift's been dying a long slow death too. Good riddance to this company!
