The Lord of the Rings Online developer Turbine suffered layoffs today. It's unclear how many employees were affected by the move. Parent company Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment would not comment at this time.

"As part of the continual review of our business operations and fluctuating market conditions, we have had to make reductions in our Turbine workforce," a spokesperson told Game Informer in a statement. "The group continues to remain an integral part of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment."

The studio previously worked on a number of expansions for The Lord of the Rings Online, which it's most recent release "Riders of Rohan" earlier this month.
