EA Montreal undergoes slight restructuring

Posted By | On 26th, Apr. 2012

EA Montreal has let go some staff as a part of its restructuring process. They will stay in the company but will be transferred to other divisions. The main priority for them is to focus on digital initiatives, including mobile and social project

“These are routine changes which address the cyclical nature of the game industry. A very small number of employees will be impacted – many will be assigned to new projects at EA, others will leave the company,” a spokesperson told GamesIndustry.

“Overall, we expect that EA’s headcount will be up at the end of this year.”

It does not seem too harmful for the studio and is for constructive purposes. Earlier there were reports that EA was laying off 500-1000 people, but that turned out to be false as EA actually expects the staff count to go up.
