EA Studio Layoffs, Next Need for Speed Delayed

EA handed off the Need for Speed franchise to Ghost Games from Criterion in 2013, and now there are reports that Ghost Games has been hit with a round of layoffs.

A source has provided Polygon with the following statement:

Electronic Arts earlier this week let go of their contractors at the office and told full-time staffers they could either take compensation and leave or continue working in the office to support work on Visceral's rumored police-themed Battlefield title, code-named Havana. Sources say Havana is due out later this year.

In addition, these layoffs have postponed the next Need for Speed title. No word yet how many from Ghost Games are now unemployed.

Oh noes, what a shame...

Sucks for the employees but I think they've fucked up Need for speed that much in recent times that most people probably don't give a shit if EA lose out on putting another heap of shit on the market this year.
