Further EA Layoffs
Earlier this month we reported on the closure of EA Mobile Montreal and the closure of many of Playfish's social games. It looks like the layoffs and closures are set to continue at EA with reports of 50 employees being let go from EA Mobile India. EA has not offered to give a detailed comment on this newest spate of layoffs beyond acknowledging that they were happening.
There have also been layoffs at Playfish as well, which is hardly surprising given that Playfish no longer appears to be making any new games, and will not be supporting what few of their games remain online for much longer. There is no official count of how many employees have been let go as of yet. Rough estimates and anonymous sources put the number of contract and full-time employees that have been let go by EA at 300 over the past week alone.
The future is looking quite grim for EA at present. What are your thoughts on the current state of affairs at EA? Let us know in the comments below.
