In a statement made on their official website, EA has confirmed layoffs in what they phrased as an "organizational update.” The website stated:
“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.
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.”
EA has been going through a series of work related layoffs. In February, EA laid off employees in LA and Montreal. Earlier this month they "streamlined operations" as well.
