A source close to Game Informer, and a number of various tweets, have confirmed another round of lay-offs at EA. Those cut worked at the company’s internal analysis and reviews team. The team was responsible for studying Metacritic trends and providing “critical response before titles get in the hands of journalists,” according to GI. It’s unknown how many people were let go but according to Polygon the number was less than 20 employees.

Rumor has it that the 1500 jobs and the dozen or so in-development games that were cut at EA affected studios Pandemic, Maxis and almost the entire Command & Conquer team.
According to a source close to Kotaku, the team working on Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight was notified today that once the game ships some time in 2010, almost the entire team is to hit the road.
While this is not a surprising move by the studio, as loads like it have a tendency to do that once a game ships, the cutbacks also landed blows to EA Maxis, Rupture Studios and Pandemic with remaining workers being relocated to EA Los Angeles and Redwood.
Rumors also state that EA has laid-off staff at Black Box, Mythic Entertainment and Tiburon.
We’ll sent out a mail and see if anyone gets back with us.
