Icarus Studios restuctures - 72 lose jobs


Icarus Studios, developer of futuristic MMO Fallen Earth, has restructured, dropping 75 percent of its overall workforce.

The studio, who told Kotaku it's to remain open, is now down from 100 employees to 28.

Fallen Earth’s latest patch, Blood Sports, is to continue as scheduled, with the company saying, “The game will remain unaffected, as servers are up and GMs as well as customer support are continuing to service players."

Icarus will now merge with a separate company, Fallen Earth llc, and will be responsible for "ongoing customer service and continued development of Fallen Earth and company projects."

Fallen Earth was released on September 22, 2009, and is currently sitting at a rating of 71 on Metacritic.
