| | Comments (0)
Sony Online EntertainmentSony Online Entertainment has decided to eliminate 205 staff, closing several studios and halting production on The Agency, its spy-themed massively multiplayer online game. Sony claims to be halting work on The Agency so it can focus on two new MMOGs, one based on PlanetSide and the other based on EverQuest. SOE also credits its "...strategic decision to reduce costs and streamline its global workforce..." with the need to close several studios. SOE is closing its Denver, CO; Seattle, WA; and Tucson, AZ studios, while also cutting staff at its Austin, TX and San Diego, CA studios.
