Mythic Layoffs

Joystiq reports rumors of layoffs at Mythic Entertainment, saying that somewhere between 60 and 130 employees have been let go, speculating that this must have impacted the development team. A post to the Warhammer Herald by Mark Jacobs (thanks Massively) addresses this, saying: "Though we are resizing the team to move from a pre-launch to a post-launch size, we remain fully committed to creating and delivering the best WAR experience." He goes on to explain how they hired additional QA staff for the launch of the MMORPG, and that: "Obviously, demand for a large QA and play-testing staff also falls after launch." In conclusion he says: "Although we now have fewer developers on the game than we did leading up to the launch, WAR still has a larger dev team today than we ever had for Dark Age of Camelot. At Mythic, we’re committed to maintaining the trust of WAR players – we’re going to deliver the content and service that keeps you playing." In a separate story, Joystiq reports that Warhammer Online reaches 300,000 subscribers.
