Less than a year after laying off more than 60 employees, Club Penguin has decided to let go of 28 more.
The 28 figure is confirmed, however according to Castanet, a news website for Kelowna and the surrounding areas, a source told them that 28 is the exact number. The article also mentions that it’s possible that more employees will be let go from the California office, as the 28 employees let go on Friday are all from Canada.
Another news website, TechVibes, has a bit more information, albeit unconfirmed. It says that employees from different sections such as QA, programming, and even the art team were let go.
While I’m skeptical about their source of this information, the TechVibes article also states that the employees were let go as Club Penguin no longer needs many people from their 2D team as they are moving towards the 3D version of Club Penguin, which we know as Project Super Secret. The article also goes as far as claiming that PSS will be mobile only. Of course, this is all unconfirmed, and thus I suggest treating it with scepticism for the time begin.
