We just heard about IGN's layoffs that will affect many gaming sites, and now in other gaming layoff related news, EA have announced an unknown amount of layoffs in their Los Angeles, Montreal and "smaller locations".
The news is coming directly from EA Labels President Frank Gibeau said:
Thousands of our existing employees have been retrained and redeployed to work on the new platforms and initiatives. But when it is not possible to redeploy a team, we soften the tough decisions with assistance. This week we let some people go in Los Angeles, Montreal as well as in some smaller locations. These are good people and we have offered outplacement services and severance packages to ease their transition to a new job.
