EA Struck With More Layoffs

Electronic Arts HQ

EA Games is undergoing what the publisher calls an “organizational update,” and will lay off staff across the company during the restructuring.

EA had already been rumored to be shutting down its EA Partners label, and this new wave of cutbacks will unfortunately not be the first time EA’s teams were affected by such plans this year.

“In recent weeks, EA has aligned all elements of its organizational structure behind priorities in new technologies and mobile,” EA said in a statement. “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.”

These are hard but essential changes as we focus on delivering great games and showing players around the world why to spend their time with us.”

Though EA hasn’t detailed just which parts of the company will be affected, Kotaku obtained an internal document sent to those within EA that better explained some of the changes. According to the email, EA’s marketing teams will be consolidated, Origin will move under Labels’ jurisdiction, and former EA Sports chief Andrew Wilson will take over as head of Origin.

More details are expected to come during EA’s May 7th financial results call.
