Blizzard Confirms Layoffs

As much as we don't enjoy sharing this news, Blizzard Entertainment has just announced that they shall be laying off approximately 600 employees from its global workforce, during the restructuring of the organization. Due to the changing needs of the company and their strive to excel in the business, there was no way to avoid these redundancies and still be a successfully business. Blizzard is a large global organization, and even though 600 might look like a big number, it might just be a small percentage of its workforce. Blizzard failed to confirm from which departments these layoffs will take place, and we can only assume that the customer service team will take the hardest hit, due to the recent falling numbers of subscribers to their popular franchise, World of Warcraft. Blizzard also announced that they skipping Blizzcon this year.
