Up to 20 staff members could lose their jobs at EA’s Irish office in Galway.
Following last week’s announcement that a number of workers are being made redundant in EA mobile’s Montreal office, Irish trade outlet The Journal has reported that some staff at the firm’s Galway branch will also lose their jobs.
“[EA is] sharpening its focus to provide games for new platforms and mobile and that, in some cases, this involves reducing team sizes,” read a statement by EA Mobile.
“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.”
This news comes just seven months after the firm announced it would create 300 new jobs in the country.
