Game Designer Matt Miller, who worked onand , confirmed on that he had been laid off too.
“So I got laid off yesterday, but on the bright side I have more time to practice for the HexTCG $100k tournament” said Miller.
Perfect World Entertainment hasn't commented on the cuts yet, but we'll keep trying to contact them to see if we can find out if it goes beyond Cryptic Studios. Our best wishes are with everyone that got laid off today.
