More Layoffs at EA.

Added on by Tony de Waal.

Reported at Gamasutra. Significant layoffs occurred over at EA. As you know EA shut down Visceral Games Montreal and let go most of Danger Close Games in February. 

This time I hear it's the entire 250-300 team at EA Mobiles Montreal studio along with all QA.  This only leaves BioWare Montreal left who's doing the next Mass Effect game.

I've also heard of several other studio's having some smaller cuts with this latest shutdown.

Sad to hear more former colleagues got let go. EA's clearly in a financial panic trying to cut costs. It's a shame as they will need to staff back up in a year as the next gen gaming ramps up, in the end it will cost them more.
