PopCap Studios Hit with Layoffs - News

By Daniel Carreras, March 14, 2014

PopCap Studios, the developers behind the massively successful Plants vs. Zombies series of games, have been hit with an undisclosed number of layoffs, the studio confirmed in a statement today to Polygon.

This comes after EA shut down the Vancouver branch of PopCap, which was another big blow to the industry following a series of closures and job cuts in recent months, with many employees losing their jobs. 

This is a shame when you consider that PopCap thrived with 500 employees for years, but after its recent acquisition by EA we're now seeing employee layoffs after projects have finished. It's a worrying trend that's emerging, and one we all hope doesn't continue for too long as we may lose a great deal of talent in the industry.
