UPDATE: EA apparently not laying off employees
As I reported earlier today, and to my mistake thinking that yesterday's news can pass off as today's news, EA has responded to site Develop, that they are indeed not going through any such restructuring.
“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”.
Weird? A little. While this statement could just be EA trying to hide the fact that there are indeed layoffs happening, who are we to say what's really going on behind EA doors.
