Trion now closing UK office as well
A week ago Trion revealed they would be closing down their office in San Diego, and today they say they are doing to same to their space in Guildford. This apparently doesn’t mean there will be mass layoffs, as MCV says thise move leads to ten redundancies, including Trion Europe head John Burns, commercial director Jeff Pabst, senior brand manager Dominic Wai and PR manager Gary Burns.
The Trion statement on the matter calls this another move in a larger realignment, and so presumably there will be UK staff moved to the remaining studios in Redwood Shores or Austin. Moving forward, all European support for Defiance and Rift will take place in Redwood Shores.
