Funcom restructuring puts Raleigh team on MMOs


By on January 27, 2013 at 11:58 am

Earlier this month, Funcom issued a new round of lay-offs and announced it would be restructuring. The results of its chopping and changing have now been announced, with the Beijing studio closing down entirely now that the developer no longer requires a dedicated asset team for The Secret World.

The Secret World, along with Anarchy Online and Age of Conan, is now the sole province of a studio in Raleigh. This location previously housed Funcom’s customer service and QA teams as well as its operations group, but has extended a welcome to developers, too. The firm hopes this will lead to “a stronger, more unified team that can service and support online games” as well as produce new content entirely in-house.

Meanwhile, Funcom Montreal is making a drastic change, focusing on unannounced products for mobile and tablets, as well as backend work on Funcom’s lauded Dreamworld tech.

Sigh, I bought this game – Grand Master and they are already restructuring 6 months after the last one..not a good sign. No longer monthly updates – the next update won’t be out until end of February, which makes me wonder how delayed the new Tokyo area will be.
