NCsoft Seattle "Realignment"

PC Gamer has word on a shakeup at NCsoft's Seattle offices after contacting the Guild Wars 2 publisher to follow up on anonymous rumors that the Seattle studio had closed. The company denied the closure, but does admit that jobs have been lost there as the result of a "realignment," though the extent of this is not known at this point, nor is it clear how, if at all, this will impact Guild Wars 2. "NCsoft is realigning internal publishing resources to better suit the needs of our game development studios," PR Director Lincoln Davis told them. "As a result of the realignment, several employees and contract positions were affected. This was a very tough decision to make and wish the best for all NCsoft employees in their next ventures."

From what I heard (which I heard during the final hours of City of Heroes, so take it with a grain of salt), GW2 is declining already. I also heard many people are quitting or being told to stay away because the devs are planning to make radical changes to gameplay already. Is either thing true? I have no idea, but enough people are saying it that maybe it's hurting NCSoft's bottom line whether it's true or not. I personally won't be getting GW2 unless it finds its way into my hands for free. I won't lie - I'm pretty pissed that City of Heroes was terminated and the last thing I'll do is give NCSoft any of my money again. GW2 was the only other game NCSoft has that I had any interest in, so now there is nothing. But, maybe that's for the best - they can keep their Asian-styled grindfests (since that seems to be all they are interested in making), and if that means they can't stay operational in North America, good riddance.  
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.
