We've contacted EA for a statement and are awaiting a response. The publisher stated yesterday that it had increased its number of planned layoffs. If you're one of those who Mythic let go, please feel free to contact us.
Update: We've placed EA's statement after the break.
[Thanks to Massively for the assist.]
"Mythic has always been committed to maintaining a high level of development and customer service to MMO players. In regards to rumors of staffing reductions today, we want to provide more insights. Mythic is resizing the team to move from a pre-launch to a post-launch size and remains fully committed to maintaining the trust of the WAR players. In no way does this conflict with our commitment to customer service and upcoming content schedule for the game - we remain fully committed to creating and delivering the best WAR experience."
