Electronic Arts has laid-off a few of the developers working on Steven Spielberg’s Boom Blox.
“This is a routine event and not in any way related to EA’s announced restructuring. Moving projects to leverage development strengths is common in global studio organizations,” said the spokesperson.
“In this case, a small project has been moved from EA Los Angeles, to the EA Bright Light Studio in Guildford, UK, where the Harry Potter franchise and several of the Hasbro properties are developed.
“A small number of employees were impacted by the decision. All eligible employees will receive severance and outplacement assistance.
“EA remains fully committed to maintaining its EALA studio which is the headquarters for the mobile division as well as for development of franchises like Medal of Honor, Command & Conquer and others.”
Boom Blox was released in 2008 and sold over 450K copies.
