Further redundancies at NCSoft?

We’re picking up rumours about layoffs at NCSoft in Brighton. It’s unclear if it is simply the result of the restructuring announced in September last year, which put 60 development jobs “at risk”, or it is something new. Update when we get it.

UPDATE: Gamesindustry.biz has confirmed that 70 jobs are going from NCSoft Europe, in addition to the 60 or so who were let go last year as the failure of Tabula Rasa became apparent. Gi.biz suggest that only a handful of staff will be left in the Brighton office.

We understand that there has been a tussle between Europe and the US over the formation of NCWest, NCSoft’s attempt to combine all of its non-Asian activities under a single banner. Looks like the US won.

The loss of 70 jobs at NCSoft is added to the Job Loss Tracker.
