The Secret World lead designer Martin Bruusgaard was let go from developer Funcom in the company's recent round of layoffs, Bruusgaard confirmed on Twitter late yesterday.

"Unfortunately, I'm not with Funcom anymore," the designer tweeted in response to a fan question. He confirmed that he found new job in IT.

"I think that 50 percent was an overall Funcom percentage," he said, referring to the number of employees let go.

"Also, rest assured that TSW is in good hands," Bruusgard added. "We have some awesome people working on it, and it's going full speed ahead!"

The layoffs at Funcom resulted in the upcoming Anarchy Online expansion to be put on hold. The Secret World is scheduled to get its second update this week.
