EA expects total staff to increase by year's end

After denying rumours of mass lay-offs yesterday, EA has said it will likely have more employees than ever by the end of 2012.

"EA is growing and looking to hire hundreds of people for our digital, console, mobile and social games. Like all game companies, we make occasional adjustments to resize teams as projects are completed and new priorities are established," the publisher told Ripten.

"Overall, we expect that headcount will be up at the end of this year."

The statement echoes an earlier one in which the publisher dismissed claims of over 1,000 lay-offs in the near future.
