Layoffs at Turbine

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is planning on laying off staff at developer Turbine (Asheron's Call, Lord of the Rings Online, Infinite Crisis). There is a statement about this from WBIE on Joystiq:

"As part of our normal business process, we're routinely looking at the strategic alignment of our company. Unfortunately, in order for us to invest in growth areas at Turbine, we have to eliminate some positions. These are always tough decisions, which we don't approach lightly, but it's crucial that Turbine is structured in a way that reflects the current and coming marketplace."

AC3 - i.e. AC1 with improved graphics, and updated mechanics.

That's all i need.

Enough with these hello kitty / world of warcraft clones.

Does Carl Savage still work there?

No, started a new job a few weeks ago. Who are you?

DDO was great at the time, but it's been close to dead for ages.

Hmm, if you layoff a hobbit, do they get a full severance package or just half of one?

(Ok, losing your job sucks and I really hope they find new employment soon!)

Do any of the original AC staff still work there?

The names I know, seem to have mostly moved on to little mobile dev studios and such.
