Updated Tue, Nov 25, 2008 by B. de la Durantaye

This weekend, we received news that Funcom had laid off a large portion of their US employees. While at the time, we ran it as a rumor as we hadn't yet received an official comment from Funcom, we can now confirm the story. We asked Funcom about the layoffs, and this is what they had to say.

We did have some staffing cuts at Funcom this week as well as new positions opening in the organization as part of our ongoing cost based efficiency and performance initiatives that are vital to any business.
