Electronic Arts has been laying off staff throughout this year as it attempts to cut costs. An EA source has told Gamesbeat that the publisher has laid off up to 20 staff in the last few days. Electronic Arts is expecting sales to be down as the transition to the next generation occurs.
EA laid off some of its staff at its Los Angeles and Montreal studios back in February. There were also reports that EA had laid off up to 250 employees in April. While EA confirmed there had been layoffs, they said the 250 figure was “too high.” However they did not give an exact figure.
EA showed off several titles for the next generation consoles. The first-person shooter Titanfall was the biggest title shown off. It is coming to the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC in Spring 2014. They also showed off Battlefield 4, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and several sports titles.
