More layoffs for ZeniMax (Update: Confirmed)


The end of this post has been updated with confirmation from Bethsoft as of August 20th.

Comments by a gaming industry recruiter and tech consultant have sparked a Twitter rumor that ZeniMax, the conglom that backs Bethsoft and The Elder Scrolls Online sub-studio ZeniMax Online Studios, has suffered a round of layoffs today, potentially at its hub in Ireland, which primarily supports ESO.

The Galway, Ireland, branch took significant hits to its customer support staff last summer. The ESO studio has lost several key devs this year.

We reached out to Bethsoft several hours ago for comment and will update as we learn more; we welcome more information from involved persons, whose anonymity will be protected.

Update 08/20/2015 8:04:32 AM EDT: A spokesperson from Bethsoft confirmed customer support layoffs to Massively OP in the following statement: “Following the successful PC and console launches of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, we have a thriving online community and have adjusted customer support to meet the ongoing needs of our players.”
