I knew their CS department and a few other things were in Raleigh, I have friends that work there. Really the cost of living, and running a business in NC is pretty low and there are a ton of incentives. There are three or four other studios in the Raleigh area also. Makes sense to me.

Yeah, it's the "Silicon Valley of the East."

I grew up in Raleigh, and still live in NC. I have friends at all of the studios in the area actually. I work design on Table Top games and LARPS, it has been suggested that I go into video game design. However I like my slow and quiet life in western NC.

I have friends who I may suggest apply there.

I would love to work in MMOs. I've been a programmer "for fun" since I was 10, and professionally since 18 (I'm 42).... O_o

We have a few positions that will be posted in Raleigh soon, so you should keep your eyes open if you are interested.

Knowing the game really well is always a key part of hiring for a live team.

I am a bit confused. http://www.funcom.com/jobs doesn't list Raleigh among offices. And other offices are still listed with no vacancies.

Durham, is what is listed on the webpage. Same thing I guess, never been there myself

Also, I am not moving. The small team left in Oslo after the *last* layoff round was unaffected by this.

Awesome. Glad to hear you'll be keeping somewhat comfortable.

So is there anything left to be developed in Norway other than strategies? Kinda sounds as if it's going to be strictly HQ.
