This TenTonHammer post is rumouring that Funcom’s dropped 70 percent of its American staff, totalling some 60 jobs.

Apparently the cuts were made on Wednesday, with the bulk of the redundancies coming from customer service and QA.

There’s little detail there so this goes under “rumour” for now. Expect it to be firmed up next week.
