EA Montreal restructures with “small number” of lay-offs
Army of Two and Skate It developer EA Montreal will let some staff go as part of “routine changes”.
GamesIndustry reports EA has confirmed the studio is being reorganised in order to focus on digital initiatives, including mobile and social projects.
“These are routine changes which address the cyclical nature of the game industry. A very small number of employees will be impacted – many will be assigned to new projects at EA, others will leave the company,” a spokesperson advised.
“Overall, we expect that EA’s headcount will be up at the end of this year.”
Sources suggest as many as 50 job cuts will be made, but fewer staff will actually leave the company, instead transferring as part of the restructuring.
