Rumors are swelling in China's gaming circles that a number of executives, including the Special Assistant to the General Manager and the General Planner of the Engineering Department, have collectively resigned from Beijing Wayi, a network games operator in China.
Although the company is denying these rumors, reports indicate that the company is losing its talents.
Wayi grew to fame for its game "Stone Age" two years ago, which was considered a breakthrough for gaming in its time. But due to a lack of talented staff, the company never made another blockbuster game, and has finally sunk to being regarded a second-class games operator.
This kind of problem is not isolated to Wayi, however, but China's games industry is often threatened by a lack of talented employees. Experts say this may be an indication of a potential threat to China's network games industry, which can only develop after a major reshuffle.
