Funcom's recent reorganization reached higher up the developer food chain than we initially expected. Earlier today former Secret World lead designer Martin Bruusgaard informed Twitter followers that he was let go from the company last week. The good news is that Bruusgaard has already found work, although he called it "a grown-up job, for now... still in IT, with a good solid company based in Oslo."
Bruusgaard also speculated about the severity of Funcom's job cuts, saying that "I think that 50 percent was an overall Funcom percentage. The Oslo office got hit much much harder."
