Rumor: EA Planning More Layoffs, Mobile Division Already Hit

Electronic Arts may have additional layoffs planned for the new year, as a source at the company tells us that the publisher is planning to lay off 400 more employees by the end of March.

Whether that's on top of the 1,000 employees EA already announced it would let go as part of a restructuring plan is unclear and we're waiting to hear back from the publisher on clarification. The cuts are said to affect both contractors and regular full-time employees.

According to the source, EA Mobile has already shed 45 staffers, with QA testers being let go at the end of this month.

EA did not yet comment on the validity of the rumored layoffs. We'll update when and if they do.
