But not as many as "outrageous" rumours previously suggested21 jobs are to be lost at 140-strong NCsoft Austin, the MMO company has confirmed.
The news follows previous rumour-driven reports that claimed the studio would be radically losing 120 of its staff.
A statement from the company confirmed that 21 positions "are being eliminated" in the product development team at the studio most recently responsible for Tabula Rasa.
The company added: "Primarily this is related to products which we have not previously announced and were in prototype phases. We are also cutting some positions on the Dungeon Runners team after deciding not to port the client to other platforms at this time."
