Industry giant Electronic Arts has been having a hell of a strange past year as they’ve been shipping tons of new games but still aren’t really making enough money to make themselves or their investors happy. We’ve seen their CEO resign, we’ve seen layoffs and of course, we’ve seen them be named the Consumerist’s Worst Company in America for a second year in a row. Ouch. Details have emerged today that Electronic Arts has been hit by yet more layoffs, with EA confirming that there were indeed layoffs, but refusing to cough up the numbers or details yet.
In a statement issued today, Electronic Arts talks about “realigning” their priorities, which has led to the departure of some staff, which of course they thank and wish well. We’ve seen this before and what it will come down to is either the staff who were let go running to the media or Twitter to complain or waiting until Electronic Arts files their financials on May 7th to get the lowdown of their restructuring and layoffs.
