Perfect Word Entertainment has laid off around 30 employees according to a statement issued to MassivelyOP from the company following rumors on Facebook. The statement — as would be expected — highlights what a small portion of the Perfect World Staff this really is and notes that it won’t have any real impact on the company’s games.
This week, Perfect World Entertainment did experience a reduction in staff of under 30 employees. Perfect World employs thousands of people from all over the world and decisions like this are always difficult. However, we are incredibly grateful for the contributions of those individuals impacted and will do our best to help each of them through this transition. This reduction in workforce will not impact any of the games published by Perfect World Entertainment.
In addition to Perfect World Entertainment, Trion is also rumored to have executed some layoffs. However, this has yet to be confirmed.
