EA has shut down EA Mobile Montreal and a bunch of people were laid off. Joystiq got the full statement from the company and you can check it out below.
“EA is sharpening its focus to provide games for new platforms and mobile. In some cases, this involves reducing team sizes as we evolve into a more efficient organization.These are difficult decisions to let go of good people who have made important contributions to EA, and whenever possible we retrain or relocate employees to new roles.
“Streamlining our operations will help ensure EA is bringing the best next-generation games to players around the world.”
This is always a terrible thing and hopefully these people get new jobs soon. Streamlining process usually results in job cuts because paying salaries are kind of an expense.
