Gameforge Lays Off 100 Employees, Hellbreed Cancelled

04 Nov 2011

With Mythos Europe already shut down, I suppose it's not entirely surprising that Gameforge has laid off over 100 employees and has cancelled their forthcoming browser-based action RPG Hellbreed. Those of you looking forward to Star Trek: Infinite Space might also be disappointed:
"Through a more efficient organisational structure, we can optimise our use of resources and great potential for further growth increase," said CEO Alexander Roesner in a statement. "This will strengthen our long term position in the dynamic market for online games."

The company has cancelled games Mythos and Hellbreed, and said it may struggle to release Star Trek: Infinite Space unless it can sign a co-publishing deal.
Bad news, all around. Hopefully those who lost their jobs are able to find work elsewhere.
