Newsbrief: Guild Wars 2 publisher NCsoft has admitted that layoffs have occurred at its Seattle offices, as part of a move to realign its internal publishing resources.

NCsoft's Lincoln Davis told PC Gamer that the realignment has resulted in "several employees and contract positions" being lost. "This was a very tough decision to make and we wish the best for all NCsoft employees in their next ventures," he added.

The South Korean publisher faced reduced profits in a previous quarter this year, due to various layoffs at the company. It also closed California-based MMORPG developer Paragon Studios and its flagship game City of Heroes earlier this year.

I wonder what effect, if any, this "realignment" will have on ArenaNet.

Considering it said "Seattle" I'm thinking a definite impact. I wish the best of luck to those who lost their jobs. Also, come to Texas! We've got the space for more developers.
