Barely a year after opening, Smilegate is shutting down its office in Berlin. Well, it's not shutting down, exactly; according to a spokesperson, the idea is to "implement Smilegate's new business strategy which foresees restructuring of certain parts of the business in the Smilegate group." Totally not a closure -- just restructuring!
The European branch was originally tasked with increasing Crossfire's e-sports presence in the West, but that apparently hasn't worked out. That hasn't worked out well enough for the home office in Korea, apparently, despite making some inroads in the European e-sports scene.
