“EA Salt Lake is becoming largely focused on mobile development, including The Sims and other projects,” an EA representative stated.

“Recent shifts unfortunately resulted in the reduction of a few teams. As we look to match skills with opportunities, some staff will be offered other positions at EA, while others will leave the company.”

EA's official site lists the pre-layoff headcount at over 100 staffers.

Thanks, GI International.
