If I was a WAR player, I would be slightly worried. Regardless of this guy's assurances.

Well, it's never good news, is it?

From my personal experiences always trust your instinct vs. what any business person says. I've had so many managers (CEOs and VPs) lie through their teeth to me without flinching one bit. You think they have any problem doing this to people they don't know?

Good to hear. Layoffs are stressful for everyone invested in a game - whether as a developer or as a player :/

Well after paying £170m for Playfish they are going to need to make savings somewhere.

Owch.. EA are feeling the pinch!

Good news. 80 redundancies seems like quite a major shake-up, though.

Five Ambitious MMOs That Never Took Off

Kevin from Denkiphile: "The first I’d ever heard of Titan was at the height of my World of Warcraft career, which was also the same time that several games, touted as WoW-killers, came onto the market and failed miserably. It made sense to me at the time that the only thing that could kill WoW was Blizzard themselves, but this also eventually changed with the advent of session-based, microtransaction-supported games like League of Legends. Titan was supposed to revolutionize and revitalize the MMO genre, but it certainly was not the first to crash and burn before its first flight. Here are some MMOs whose ambitions flew them too close to the sun."
