After announcing job losses in Brighton and Austin last week, NCsoft exec David Reid says the Austin is “critically important” to the company’s future.

“We really do believe that Austin is going to grow at a fairly dramatic pace over the next few years,” said Reid, with a nod in the direction of upcoming MMO Aion: The Tower of Eternity.

Hopefully the news will go some way in placating the Austin team in light of the recent cutbacks.
