ea breadline 1 Hopes, dreams in short supply as EA literally decimates employee population

Electronic Arts has conducted another round of layoffs, with estimates stating that as much as 10% of their workforce has been let go.

In recent weeks, EA has aligned all elements of its organizational structure behind priorities in new technologies and mobile.  This has led to some difficult decisions to reduce the workforce in some locations.  We are extremely grateful for the contributions made by each of our employees – those that are leaving EA will be missed by their colleagues and friends.

The official statement from EA is pretty sparse, but the move is unsurprising considering the recent shutdown of a number of EA’s Facebook games. It looks like there are tough times ahead for the company, which was recently cited as the “worst company in America” just a few weeks ago.
