Sony Online Cuts Staff By a Third
By Rick DeMott

Sony Online Entertainment has laid off a third of its staff, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The move means 205 employees will lose their jobs and the company will shut down offices in Denver, Tucson and Seattle.

The restructuring move sees the division stopping work on the MMOG title THE AGENCY. SOE will now focus on creating new MMOs for its franchises PLANETSIDE and EVERQUEST.

SOE will continue at its Austin and San Diego locations, which both lost nearly half their staff. FREE REALMS, STAR WARS GALAXIES, LEGENDS OF NORRATH and STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS ADVENTURES, which were being worked on in Denver, and POXNORA, in Tucson, will be moved to San Diego. Austin operates DC UNIVERSE ONLINE and STAR WARS GALAXIES, while San Diego manages EVERQUEST, PLANETSIDE and VANGUARD.

I had no idea that Star Wars Galaxies or EverQuest were still around.

"We and you ought not to pull on the ends of a rope which you have tied the knots of war. Because the more the two of us pull, the tighter the knot will be tied. And then it will be necessary to cut that knot, and what that would mean is not for me to explain to you. I have participated in two wars and know that war ends when it has rolled through cities and villages, everywhere sowing death and destruction. For such is the logic of war. If people do not display wisdom, they will clash like blind moles and then mutual annihilation will commence."   - Nikita Khrushchev
