According to this GI report, NCsoft has cut 70 jobs over at the NCWest office in Brighton, UK.
While a similar situation happened last year after in-house development was shut down, details regarding this round of job losses have not been confirmed by the company as yet.
Managing Director Geoff Heath has refused to comment.
UPDATE: GamesIndustry just confirmed that 55 people were let go, but that 30 jobs were saved.
