Game Informer is reporting that recent layoffs have hit developer Zenimax Online, the crew behind the recent MMORPG The Elder Scrolls Online. Bethesda, the parent company to Zenimax Online, has reported that the reductions were focused on staff working in development and customer support.

“As is the norm for games of this type, we had ramped up a large workforce to develop a game of vast scale, and ramped up our customer service to handle the expected questions and community needs of The Elder Scrolls Online at launch,” a company representative told us via email. “Now that we are nearly six months post launch, we have a thriving online community in a game that runs smoothly. We have adjusted staffing to meet the ongoing needs of the studio, which continues to operate with a large work force.”

Bethesda has assured those worried that the layoffs will not affect The Elder Scrolls Online and its development cycle, with the publisher noting that work on both the PC and console versions are still ongoing. "We remain strongly committed to The Elder Scrolls Online, and continue to invest heavily to develop new content for PC players, prepare the game for its console launch, and handle our planned expansion into important international territories,” we were told. “As for customer service, we continue to operate large support centers in Hunt Valley, MD and Galway, Ireland."
