Discord has made a round of cuts internally, the chat service has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz.
"Yesterday we made an active shift in the talent needs of our marketing department to better serve our growing business and future ambitions," a representative said. "As part of this, some difficult personnel decisions had to be made to meet these goals."
It's not clear at this point just how many people were let go.
At the same time, it has spent 2019 largely backing away from its 2018 plan to become a place where users went to get their games. It shut down its storefront in March, instead allowing developers to sell games through their own channels, and later this month it will stop giving free games away as perks to subscribers of its premium Discord Nitro service.
