Back in December, MMO developer Trion Worlds was with a round of layoffs. The studio chalked it down to "a response to market conditions."
The company has again been hit with another round of firings, this time an estimate 100 staff have reportedly been let go.
According to a statement from the developer, "To best position Trion in a rapidly changing industry, we have reorganized our teams and are expanding our free to play offering. With Defiance, we delivered a great game that more than one million gamers registered to play and continue to enjoy. As we progress from launch to ongoing development of the game, we are adjusting our staffing levels to deliver new content and improved features. RIFT, and our other titles in development, were unaffected by these changes. We are very much looking forward to the free to play release of RIFT and are excited by the other new titles currently in development."
The studio still has one unreleased game, the MMORTS End of Nations. Stay tuned.
