Funcom Closing Chinese Studio

Funcom's restructuring continues, reports Gamasutra, saying the company is closing down its studio in Beijing China that was responsible for the art and animation in The Secret World, Funcom's conspiratorial MMORPG. These responsibilities will be taken up by the company's office in Raleigh, North Carolina, which will also be tasked with creating assets for Age of Conan and Anarchy Online, though the report notes that as part of this restructuring some positions have been cut in Raleigh, as well. No word if this has resulted in outcry from Chinese developers about their jobs being outsourced to the U.S.

I actually had a friend who worked in this studio a long while back before the game even had a title. There were a lot of Americans who worked there. So, probably Americans getting downsized here too, LOL.
