According to the website Startup Grind, Electronic Arts will be laying off more than a 1000 employees. It was originally suppose to take place sometime last week, but was postponed, but it looks like this might be changing this week.
The recent report is claiming between 500-1000 employees will be affected. Startup Grind reports a disappointing last year for Battlefield 3 and how their sales have been somewhat overshadowded by overspending on marketing, and disappointing subscriber numbers for big budget MMO Star Wars: Old Republic. Again, this could be pure speculation but watch this space as we hear more updates.
