Texan development studio, and home of Wizard101, KingsIsle Entertainment has confirmed reports that it has cut a number of staff today.
"To verify, many talented employees were released as part of a reduction in force today at KingsIsle Entertainment, and we wish them the best," the studio told Gamasutra.
"This coincides with a couple of unreleased mobile games being cancelled. The strategy is to refocus our efforts on our MMO games and polish our more promising mobile projects, many of which are still slated for a 2016 release. Fans of our MMOs should know that Pirate101 is soon to receive an update and will be going to Test Realm most likely next week. Wizard101 has new content updates in the works for both Summer and Fall 2016."
The studio was founded in 2005 and had offices in Dallas and Austin. It first release Wizard101 in September 2008 and followed up with Pirate101 in 2012.
