Defiance Set To Suffer Following Massive Trion Layoffs
The recently released media hybrid, Defiance, could be set for a bumpy ride as developers announce huge layoffs in their San Diego Defiance team. Trion Worlds have suffered in recent months, after taking over development of the struggling End of Nations, and their newest MMORPG game experienced a rather bumpy launch. Since then the game has received minimal attention from the media and has failed to deliver on many of the promises made.
False reports also spread that suggested employees were being escorted from the grounds by security personal, and up to 80% of the staff were laid off. Trion responded to these allegations calling them "100% fake" and suggesting that the numbers were extremely exaggerated.
