Almost immediately after an announcement that Scott Hartsman was rejoining the company as its new CEO, news has surfaced that Trion Worlds is closing its San Diego office.

A Trion Worlds representative was able to confirm the news for Gamasutra. The news comes on the heels of reports from several months ago that company-wide layoffs had all but eradicated the team dedicated to Defiance. Here is the full statement:

"We can confirm that the San Diego studio will be closing. The day to day operations of Defiance will be moved to our Redwood City studio where it can be managed alongside Rift and our other in development titles including ArcheAge and End of Nations. As part of this transition, we are 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."

It is unclear at this time how many workers will be affected by the studio's closure. Gamasutra has followed up with Trion for clarification but has not yet received a reply.
