EA’s just announced plans to lay off an extra 400 staff over and above the 600 redundancies it announced in October.

The sum total of lost EA jobs now planned amounts to 1,000, or 10 percent of the company’s total workforce.

The revised restructuring will result in the consolidation or closure of at least nine studio and publishing locations.

$120 million will be saved annually thanks to the plan, the publisher said today.

EA announced in October it was to shed 600 jobs, or 6 percent of its staff, following the release of Q2 losses.
