Report: Layoffs strike EA Montreal
Report: Layoffs strike EA Montreal
February 6, 2015 | By Alex Wawro




Electronic Arts has confirmed that a number of people were laid off from its EA Montreal division in this week, and a source close to those affected suggests this may herald the closure of the EA Mobile branch based in Montreal.

The news was first brought to our attention by the afore-mentioned source, who said a number of mobile developers had recently been laid off from EA Mobile in Montreal.

When reached for comment an EA representative confirmed that layoffs had occurred but declined to state how many developers were affected or what this means for the future of EA's efforts in Montreal, other than that "these changes do not impact our current development plans."

"We made a staffing change in our Montreal studio to align with our current development and service plans," reads an excerpt of the statement EA provided to Gamasutra. "A small number of employees were impacted, and we are working closely with each of them to ensure the best transition possible."

As always, if you or someone you know If you was affected by this decision you can email Gamasutra to tell your story confidentially.
