In a statement published on Massively, NCsoft’s confirmed that 21 members of staff have been laid off at its Austin facility, backing up reports of trouble at the outfit.

We are announcing that 21 positions are being eliminated in the Austin office of NCsoft in the area of product development. Primarily this is related to products which we have not previously announced and were in prototype phases. We are also cutting some positions on the Dungeon Runners team after deciding not to port the client to other platforms at this time.

There’s plenty more through there, including names of those left on the Dungeon Runners team, of which only five of 18 now remain.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
