We reached out to the team over at Fallen Earth, LLC/Icarus Studios for an official statement about the layoffs, considering we saw the last round of layoffs and restructuring in April this year. While there are no greatly illuminating details to the reply, today's announcement, coupled with the prior layoffs, doesn't generally bode well for this gritty indie MMO. For those curious about the team's reply, we've posted it behind the break.
In order to maintain ongoing production and expansion of Fallen Earth, we have reshuffled some of our management team. As a result of these recent events, Canticle, Archangel and Circatrix are no longer with us.
As a small indie developer, Fallen Earth stands by our fans and we assure you that your game play experience will not be compromised by the recent events.
We will continue to deliver new content as development on Fallen Earth continues. Additionally, all community events will carry on as usual-please keep an eye out for our November State of the Game, slated for early next week.
