More Staff Lay-Offs at Electronic Arts

Recommended Posts

Hot on the heels of Sony's announcement of the PlayStation 4, Electronic Arts have announced some staff lay-offs that have affected studios in Los Angeles and Montreal. EA would not specifically name any teams or studios, but multiple sources say that they've shut down Visceral Montreal. Since Command & Conquer is developed in Los Angeles, we don't know if this means anything to the Victory Games team based there.


"Transition is our friend", says EA President Frank Gibeau, who posted this statement about these lay-offs. Below is a sample...

EA’s leadership on these high-growth platforms allows us to retain and attract the industry’s best talent. Thousands of our existing employees have been retrained and redeployed to work on the new platforms and initiatives. But when it is not possible to redeploy a team, we soften the tough decisions with assistance. This week we let some people go in Los Angeles, Montreal as well as in some smaller locations. These are good people and we have offered outplacement services and severance packages to ease their transition to a new job.

I hope until EA_CIRE tell us sooner enough about this, I am sure Victory Games will not be affected by the layoffs.
