down the vine via Joystiq that Electronic Arts' new cost-cutting initiative has "cost" Warhammer Online roughly 21 customer support staff, half of its QA department and all of it's playtesting group. According to EA, they currently has no plans to make any additional cuts -- although that doesn't mean we aren't worried about it. And when asked about the future of the game and it's team, EA was unable to give any answers to Joystiq.
Our deepest condolences go out to everyone who lost their jobs, and we sincerely hope that all land on their feet as soon as possible. To those who remain, we definitely hope that don't see anything similar happen to their livlihoods at anytime in the future.
