News expected to mostly effect Montreal-based mobile development studio

EA axes jobs in a bid to sharpen its focus on mobile and new platforms

Electronic Arts has announced an undisclosed number of redundancies.

The job cuts are expected to mostly impact the Montreal-based mobile development studio.

EA has released a statement explaining the layoffs are part of a streamlining effort, as the company looks to ‘sharpen’ its focus on providing games for mobile and other new platforms.

"EA is sharpening its focus to provide games for new platforms and mobile. In some cases, this involves reducing team sizes as we evolve into a more efficient organisation. These are difficult decisions to let go of good people who have made important contributions to EA, and whenever possible we retrain or relocate employees to new roles.”

"Streamlining our operations will help ensure EA is bringing the best next-generation games to players around the world."
