GREE, the Japanese social gaming giant is letting 30 people go in its US offices, specifically in the San Francisco area. The company is looking “to focus on creating the next generation of mobile social games,” the result of which “has been clearly demonstrated by the success and growth of our games.”
Said growth and success was apparently not enough to save thirty jobs and while any corporate structure needs to shed some of its workforce occasionally, few such announcements manage to sound as smug and unconcerned as GREE’s.
“As part of ensuring that we are operating as efficiently as possible, we have made the difficult decision to reduce our work force. The employees leaving today have made great contributions to our success and we wish them all the best,” the company’s statement reads.
