Garena Closes Down PH Office

We had just got ahold of a very sudden and shocking news that GARENA IS OFFICIALLY CLOSING DOWN PH OPERATIONS.  According to an article posted at DA Geeks,

"Garena SG HQ has abruptly closed the Philippine office of the Game publisher effectively cutting off 95% of its current Philippine workforce."

Why did Garena PH office close down?

The report we read from DAGeeks did not contain any detail as to why the Philippine office is closing down.  According to the posted report, the decision was made a couple of weeks after Globe Conquerors Manila.

We visited the website of Garena Ph and we did not see any announcement pertaining to this matter. We also made a Google search pertaining to this issue but there is nothing posted online.

According further to DAGeeks

Currently, I was informed that the only remaining Garena PH team left is the finance team so this puts to question the operations side of their games. It may be that the SG team is currently handling the load left by the closure and there has been no word yet on the future of the company here in the Philippines or of their games.

Possible Effects of Garena PH Closure

Closing the office of Garena in the Philippines will possibly affect tons of gamers.  It might make some of the games lag or slower than usual since we have to connect to foreign servers.  This also means that eSports might also be affected.

What do you think will be the effect of this sad and sudden closure of Garena PH?
