Layoffs Hit EA Canada and Blackbox

Even though Electronic Arts had a good year, some developers are being let go.

Electronic Arts is in the process of "restructuring", according to a report on The Escapist. The publisher is laying people off in its Canadian workforce, specifically EA Canada and Black Box. The reason for this is unknown considering EA had good sales numbers in 2011.

It's not known how many employees at each development studio have been laid off. EA did speak to GamesIndustry about the restructuring:

EA in Vancouver is transforming its studio to align with EA's transformation to high-growth digital formats, including online, social gaming and free-to-play. As the BC studio makes this transformation, a small number of employees are being impacted while most others are being retrained, redeployed and rolling-on to new projects.
