Cryptic Studios parent company Perfect World Entertainment has issued lay-offs, which rumours describe as devastating.
A number of Cryptic staff have confirmed via social media that they have been laid off, but Perfect World has not issued a statement.
We have reason to suspect the lay-offs may be quite severe. Massively sighted a couple of since-deleted tweets, one of which called the losses a "slaughter".
No word yet on whether other Perfect World teams, like the Redwood Shores office and overseas studios, have seen cuts.
Best of luck to all staff affected by the lay-offs.
