Warhammer Online Dev Confirms Layoffs

By Nick Breckon, Feb 05, 2009 5:57pm PST Following yesterday's rumor that indicated Warhammer Online developer Mythic had let go between 60-130 of its employees, company representatives today confirmed that the studio has indeed downsized.

"Mythic is resizing the team to move from a pre-launch to a post-launch size and remains fully committed to maintaining the trust of the WAR players," reads a company statement sent to Shacknews.

Added Mythic: "In no way does this conflict with our commitment to customer service and upcoming content schedule for the game - we remain fully committed to creating and delivering the best WAR experience."

While Warhammer Online boasted over 800,000 subscribers following its September launch, that number has since fallen to around 300,000 according to publisher Electronic Arts.
