Funcom has announced temporary layoffs as The Secret World continues to struggle."we have long-term plans for the company" and "we remain fully committed to all of our games".
No details have been given as to how many people have lost their jobs. Funcom blames The Secret World's 72/100 Metacritic for the problems.
"While there are very positive reviews, there are as well mixed or average reviews from various press outlets, giving an aggregated score for The Secret World of 72 out of 100, which is to be considered low, and not in line with the positive feedback received during the beta phases from both press and players," Funcom revealed.
