Electronic Arts has announced how it has made preparations to lay off staff to make way for the companies transition to the next generation of consoles.
In a statement issued to IGN, EA said:
“EA is sharpening its focus to provide games for new platforms and mobile. 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.”
EA has yet to reveal how many staff were laid off and who the effected employee’s are.
Analog Addiction wish the best to whoever lost their jobs today.
