In an effort to reorganize some teams to focus on “digital initiatives,” EA’s confirmed a round of layoffs at its Montreal studio. A”very small number” are expected to lose their jobs though.
“These are routine changes which address the cyclical nature of the game industry,” the publisher’s told Gamesindustry International. “A very small number of employees will be impacted – many will be assigned to new projects at EA, others will leave the company.”
According to Gamesindustry, who were tipped off by the changes, EA Montreal was to lose 50 workers. The number leaving EA altogether may be smaller though.
Said digital initiatives are said to include “new mobile and social projects.”
