Layoffs at Sony Online Entertainment
EverQuest publisher cuts jobs at San Diego and Austin studios.
Sony Online Entertainment today announced layoffs at the company's offices in San Diego and Austin in an effort to reduce costs and align resources more appropriately.
"As part of a strategic decision to reduce costs and streamline its workforce, SOE announced today that it will eliminate positions in both its San Diego and Austin studios," the company said in a statement.
"This strategic alignment of resources better positions SOE to remain a global leader in online games, as well as to align development resources towards our current portfolio of MMOs and the highly-anticipated future installments of the EverQuest franchise, EverQuest Next Landmark and EverQuest Next."
Sony Online Entertainment currently operates games like DC Universe Online and PlanetSide 2, and is working on EverQuest Next and EverQuest Next Landmark, which will be released this winter as a free download.
