NCsoft Reduces Its Staff By 70

by Rainier on June 23, 2006 @ 10:10 a.m. PDT

NCsoft acknowledged today that its Austin offices are undergoing an immediate restructuring including the difficult task of reducing members of its workforce, in particular GMs and QA staff.

The online games industry is one that is continually changing with the scaling up and down of business based on product launches and product development schedules. Over the past two and a half years NCsoft has launched six major titles into the North American market and has grown with each title launch. As the company continues to grow its live products and prepares its next set of major online game releases for later in 2006 and 2007, the company sees a slowdown in its launch pattern and the need to streamline its business.

For this reason, NCsoft has reduced its 300 person workforce in Austin by approximately 70 people to accommodate this change. This decision has no impact on the schedules of any projects currently in development and service to NCsoft’s current games will continue without interruption.
