Bethesda has confirmed reports of layoffs at The Elder Scrolls Online developer Zenimax Online. Stating that the developer has “adjusted staffing to meet the ongoing needs of the studio.”

According to the developer, the majority of layoffs were focused on its pre-launch ramp up staff and customer service. “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 representative told Game Informer.

“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.”

However, Bethesda added that these layoffs will not affect development. “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,” the rep said. “As for customer service, we continue to operate large support centers in Hunt Valley, MD and Galway, Ireland.
