EA cost cutting continues with more job losses


As the restructuring at Electronic Arts continues, the latest victims are employees at Mythic Entertainment and Tiburon studios. Mythic is best known for the Warhammer Online series, while Tiburon is the home of Madden football.

According to the latest reports that we are hearing, Mythic’s play test group, half of the quality assurance team as well as twenty-one customer service employees, have been given their walking papers in the latest round of EA cuts.

As for Tiburon we don’t have all of the exact numbers yet, but our sources are telling us that many employees have been given the axe or have been notified that they will be let go soon.

The layoffs are part of the Electronic Arts plan to cut the company’s global work force by about ten percent before starting the next fiscal year, which begins April 1st. EA is saying publicly that the cuts are due in part to underperforming titles, as well as the global economic downturn.
