Video Game Developer and Distributor EA to Lay Off 350 Employees
Company says it is focused on improving games and services
Video game developer and distributor Electronic Arts, better known as EA, is laying off 350 of its 9,000 employees, or 3.9 percent, globally, reports The Verge. The layoffs will primarily impact marketing and publishing. However, EA has closed its Japan office and will be “ramping down” its Russia office. Considering the company’s third quarter results for the period ended December 31, 2018, this should not come as a surprise.
