Gameforge to Lay Off 100 Employees

November 3, 2011 -

German online browser and MMO game company Gameforge plans to let 100 of its 450 employees go.

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

The company recently cancelled several games including Mythos and Hellbreed, and said that it may have a hard time releasing Star Trek: Infinite Space if it can't find a co-publishing partner.

Last year Gameforge took over Frogster, and yesterday Frogster founder and CEO Christoph Gerlinger announced that he would leave the company after nearly seven years there. Gameforger is best known for creating and operating massively multiplayer online and strategy titles, and recently claimed to have reached the milestone of 300 million users.

MechaTama31Goth: True, but you can at least not waste your time reloading pages that have no new comments, or trying to remember which stories you even commented on.03/04/2015 - 12:26am

Goth_SkunkTo be fair, the tracker only advises you of threads that you've commented on have received more comments. It does nothing towards advising you if you've been replied to.03/04/2015 - 12:21am
ZippyDSMleeSeems you can make a link to the trackpage and ti will go there for as long as you are loged in.03/03/2015 - 11:26pm

MechaTama31Is it possible to make it so clicking on your username takes you to your Track page instead of your Edit page? I use the Track page routinely to see if anybody has replied to me. Editing my profile, not so much. Save a bit of wear and tear on my mouse?03/03/2015 - 10:44pm

MechaTama31I was about to get all defensive about liking Metal Gear Solid, but then I saw that he was talking about "cinematic" as a euphemism for "crappy framerate".03/02/2015 - 8:29pm
