Turbine Entertainment Continues Downsizing

It’s odd that more bad news is coming out of Turbine Entertainment. The developer of Asheron’s Call, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Lord of the Rings Online and the upcoming DC universe themed MOBA Infinite Crisis has had to cull back once again. Handed down from the overlords at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the latest cuts are labeled as a “strategic realignment”.

The statement did not specify how many employees were unfortunately shown the door or which teams were impacted. Gamasutra, which first broke the story, has not received further details despite the company’s request.

It was announced back in late 2013 that LotRO would not be seeing a new expansion in 2014, the first year since 2010 that an expansion didn’t land in Middle-earth. Enough of the bad news. Hit the jump for the latest hero reveal for Infinite Crisis, the introduction of Star Sapphire!
