EA has confirmed that it has laid-off staff members at Sims and Spore developer EA Maxis.

“Often in the video game industry, the size of a studio fluctuates in response to business conditions,” read an official statement. “In this case, EA has taken action to reduce the workforce at Maxis as we focus the business and focus Maxis.”

No word on the number of people affected.

Thanks, Shack.
