Electronic Arts announced today that they’ll be laying a number of employees.
The company has not revealed the specifics—how many, which studios—but they have said that EA Mobile Montreal will be hit hard
“EA is sharpening its focus to provide games for new platforms and mobile,” an EA rep informed 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.”
This marks the second round of layoffs by EA in 2013. EA Montreal and their Los Angeles studios both faced layoffs in February.
