EA Internal memo: Snippet
The workforce reductions which we communicated in the last two weeks represent the majority of our planned personnel actions. We are extremely grateful for the contributions made by each of these individuals - they will be missed by their colleagues and friends at EA.
This is unfortunate and unlucky time for the people let go, but what does this mean for EA and the industry on a whole? Only time will tell.
