Perfect World Entertainment has been hit by a “potentially massive” round of layoffs, Massively Overpowered reports.

Perfect World has not issued a statement on the matter, however Mark Miller posted on Twitter that he was laid off on Monday from Cryptic Studios and a Perfect World PR representative called the layoffs “a slaughter” in Twitter posts that have since been deleted.

The report also cites an anonymous Cryptic employee who claims that 18 people had been laid off from the Star Trek and Neverwinter studio, and deeper cuts have been made at the Perfect World Redwood Shores location.
