PopCap Dublin has been closed

Written by David Stellmack



96 have been laid off as part of it


While we knew that PopCap has been looking over its operations and trimming the fat to get leaner, we have learned that the company has closed its Dublin, Ireland facility, leading to 96 employees being let go. Apparently, this has been a possibility for some time, as the company was in a consultation period.

This action follows an additional 50 employees who were let go from the company’s American offices, as well. The company is providing outplacement assistance to employees and also helping the employees with looking at options within other PopCap facilities, as well as other development teams within the EA family.

While PopCap is letting employees go, parent company EA announced its intention last week to add as many as 300 new jobs at its Ireland customer service center over the course of the next year. Sources tell us that the two moves are unconnected.
