Wireplay struggles on

Staff all laid off, but service continues

A former employee has confirmed that the entire Wireplay team was laid off today as part of the latest staff cuts at failed dot.com Gameplay PLC, which is currently in its death throes awaiting sale or dismemberment. But the team has promised to continue supporting the long-running online games service in their spare time "for the foreseeable future" to give it a stay of execution. In fact, the statement was surprisingly upbeat, saying that "although we will unlikely be able to offer the same levels of support as we currently do .. we expect to be able to give some positive information about our plans for the future by the end of the month".

"You shouldn't be hammering nails into Wireplay's coffin just yet."
