CCP Games merged with popular pen and paper developers, White Wolf, to develop World of Darkness but it seems the project has suffered a painful blow following a recent announcement from the developers. According to a report on MMORPG.com the Atlanta branch of CCP Games has been forced to let go 15 employees following “strategic adjustments” to staff.

It’s been a long while since we’ve heard anything exciting about World of Darkness and hearing bad news first is never a fun experience. It may pave the way for some more positive information, such as screenshots and in-game footage, but for now it’s leaving a sour taste.

CCP
today made strategic adjustments to the staffing on the team working on
the World of Darkness project in Atlanta that resulted in the
elimination of approximately 15 positions at the company.  The change
was due to our evaluation of the game?s design and ongoing development
needs.  While this was a difficult decision, CCP remains committed to
the franchise and our promise to make a compelling, rich, and deep World
of Darkness experience.
