According to this GI report, NCsoft may be readying to cut around 50 staff from its Brighton office as part of a “streamlining” effort.

From the piece:

According to a number of sources close to the company the move is set to be made following the decision to stop work on the untitled MMO that was being developed there, a game that was announced this time last year when the office underwent significant expansion.

That expansion, which was to be funded in part by a GBP 950,000 grant from the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA), is now to be reversed as the company streamlines its business. It’s not thought that NCsoft would have received any of that money so far.
