Gameforge, the online game company, has announced they will be laying off of 20 employees at its Berlin studio. These jobs have been made redundant. The company will let go of PR and product development employees, and are asking others to move to its Karlsruhe, Germany studio. Only a few employees in the social media and brand building will stay in Berlin.
"Some of the employees have been suggested to relocate to Karlsruhe, but the majority of the affected staff have been given a termination agreement," a source close to the situation told GamesIndustry International.
Three directors have left the company before the layoffs. Director of corporate communications Axel Schmidt, director of business development Andreas Peltret and the director of product PR Marco Neubert.
