Tera publisher lays off undisclosed number of employees

Wednesday, 8th August 2012 22:07 GMT By Jeff Dunn

A now former employee at Tera publisher En Masse Entertainment has tweeted that the folks behind MMO Tera have laid off an unknown number of staff members.

“Layoffs have occurred at En Masse. I was hit,” tweeted Evan “Scapes” Berman, who was the senior community manager at the company.

A short while later, En Masse released their own statement on the turn of events.

“Today, we had to let go of some of the great talent at En Masse Entertainment. While a tough decision, it was necessary as we prepare for the next chapter of our business,” said Publishing VP Chris Lee.

“TERA has been a great launch for us, and we are committed to our loyal players. We’re taking measures to align the needs of our business to continue supporting TERA and preparing for our future. We are working with those affected by this transition, including offering assistance on new prospects within the industry/area. If there are companies who are looking for talented people with publishing experience, please send an email with the details to”

Tera was released this past May.

    Funny how the Senior Community managers always appear to be the first to go – EA did the same with SWTOR. Shame and good luck to those who lost their jobs.

    MMOs are such a tough place to be involved in and those who decide to take up a job in that genre have balls of fucking steel!

    “To fire”! The correct term is “to fire” and not “to let go”.
