Trion Worlds have confirmed that they are shutting down their San Diego based offices and relocating the operations of Defiance and End of Nations to their headquarters in Redwood City.
The developer is reportedly “working hard to ensure that a number of great people will be making the move from San Diego to the Bay Area and continue their work at Trion”.
As part of the shakeup, a new CEO has been appointed in the form of Scott Hartsman, former lead designer on RIFT who left the company at the beginning of the year.
In an email to Trion employees, Hartsman said that they would be “laying the groundwork for a new strategy for Trion, one that’s closer to the foundation of how we’ve had our wins so far”.
Trion let go around 40 employees back in December 2012 and then issued another fresh round of lay-offs in May. This latest move is seemingly part of an effort to stabilise and secure their finances as development continues.
