Gameforge lays off 100, Star Trek: Infinite Space looking shaky

Gameforge is set to cut a little over 20 percent of its staff. reports that the German browser-based games company, which bought a majority share in Frogster last year, will cut 100 of its 450 employees.

The publisher previously canceled Mythos and Hellbreed, and is now reportedly struggling to finish Star Trek: Infinite Space unless a co-publishing agreement is signed.

"Through a more efficient organizational structure, we can optimize our use of resources and great potential for further growth increase," said CEO Alexander Roesner in a statement. "This will strengthen our long term position in the dynamic market for online games."
