'In order for us to invest in growth areas at Turbine, we have to eliminate some positions,' says spokesperson

A number of staff at Dungeons & Dragons Online developer Turbine have been laid off.

In a statement to Gamasutra, a Warner Bros spokesperson said it had made the employees redundant so it could invest in other "growth areas" of the studio.

It is not currently known how many staff have been laid off.

"As part of our normal business process, we’re routinely looking at the strategic alignment of our company," read the statement.

"Unfortunately, in order for us to invest in growth areas at Turbine, we have to eliminate some positions.

"These are always tough decisions, which we don’t approach lightly, but it’s crucial that Turbine is structured in a way that reflects the current and coming marketplace."
