EA Denies Job Cut Claims

on April 16, 2012 11:00 AM

Yesterday a report by StartupGrind outlined a claim that EA was set to cut anywhere from 500 – 1000 jobs. The site stated that EA was basing the decision on pricey post launch marketing for Battlefield 3 as well as an “already declining” subscriber base for  Star Wars: The Old Republic.

EA has released a statement to MCV to refute the claims made. Here’s what they had to say: “There are no lay-offs as such, we always have projects growing and morphing. At any given time there are new people coming in and others leaving. EA is growing and hiring and building teams to support the growing demand for digital games and services.”

EA is coming off one of its best quarters in years with their huge push into digital finally paying off. However, when companies like Activision can close studios at the same time when they’re making money hand over fist, anything is possible.
