Recently, it has been announced that Sulake are making some drastic cuts to costs and it is expected that around 25% of the whole company’s workforce will be fired. This has raised quite a panic amongst Habbo’s and already rumours are spreading about what this could actually mean.
However, earlier today the companies CEO Paul LaFontaine published an article on the Sulake website, explaining what exactly these changes mean, as well as answering most of your questions.
To destroy most rumours, he made it clear that no hotels will be closing and insisted that in fact, the opposite was happening, “if anything, we are going to make them bigger.” After it as announced that 11 country offices will be closing, he reassured that not all offices will be closing and insisted that this move was for the better as it would improve communication, meaning things will be achieved faster.
LaFontaine described the changes as “very straightforward” and explained that in a nutshell, all these changes mean is that they will be working on and focusing on the things we like and want – meaning they will not waste time, money and efforts trying to develop something that we do not like and won’t use, things like this will be removed.
He explained that the simple reason for the cut down of staff was because there were too many of them coming up and working on things that weren’t popular and they didn’t have as many who were developing things that were popular. He also promised that Sulake will “bring in some new people as well.”
