Layoffs at EA
Filed under: EA


There have supposedly been a lot of layoffs at publisher EA, with a report claiming this has severely affected the company's dev team in Montreal - a studio devoted to mobile games.

"EA is sharpening its focus to provide games for new platforms and mobile," a spokesperson said to Polygon. "In some cases, this involves reducing team sizes as we evolve into a more efficient organization. These are difficult decisions to let go of good people who have made important contributions to EA, and whenever possible we retrain or relocate employees to new roles. Streamlining our operations will help ensure EA is bringing the best next-generation games to players around the world."

Oh, EA's reputation is sparkling at the moment.

Translation: The greedy execs aren't getting enough money, so they are cutting jobs and keeping the extra cash....

I finished with EA back in 1991 and so glad i've never had the misfortune of going back, they have turned into something that they despised at the time of their creation, still i'll raise a glass or two at their expense.

^ Dean's actually absolutely right about them turning into something they despised at the time of their creation.

They've become "the monster" and it's totally at odds with their founders' ideals.
