Sony elects to close studios

Eliminates 205 jobs in the process
Sony Online Entertainment has eliminated 205 jobs with its decision to close studios in Denver, Seattle, and Tucson. SOE claims that it is, “…a strategic decision to reduce costs and streamline its global workforce.”

As part of the decision SOE will be canceling the delayed cross-platform MMO under development in Seattle that was called “The Agency.” SOE says the decision to cancel “The Agency” will allow the company to focus development resources on the delivery of two new MMO titles that are based on the PlanetSide and EverQuest franchises.

Projects that were in progress at the Denver and Tucson locations will be moved over to the San Diego HQ. The decision to better align the company’s resources will position SOE to remain a global leader in online gaming and continue to service players.
