Gamefly recently confirmed that it has trimmed its workforce by about 15 percent. The company is reorganizing its business to fit its focus on publishing mobile titles and offering PC games for both purchase and rent, along with by-mail renting of console games on disc.
"We recently made the difficult decision to restructure our organization to better align ourselves to the existing console and digital games markets," said Dave Hodess, CEO at GameFly. "We studied our business and determined that we could operate with a smaller team while continuing to provide the same high level of service to our customers."
"Aside from a greater focus in our software development efforts, we're not making any significant changes in our console subscription or digital download businesses,” he added. “GameFly remains profitable with a strong balance sheet. We would like to thank all of our employees for their continued dedication and hard work. For those that are leaving us this week, we sincerely appreciate all your efforts over the years."
