No Layoffs Incoming Says EA: Company Responds To Report
EA has finally responded to a report found on StartupGrind claiming they had confirmed through multiple sources within the company that Layoffs were abound and 500 to 1000 people were to be left without work as a result of poor Star Wars: The Old Republic and Battlefield 3 sales. The company has issued the following statement to MCV denying these claims.
“There are no lay-offs as such, we always have projects growing and morphing…at any given time there are new people coming in and others leaving. EA is growing and hiring and building teams to support the growing demand for digital games and services.”
StartupGrind’s report claimed that the layoffs are coming very soon. We’ll keep our ear to the ground and follow up on this story in the coming week.
