Update: EA Lays Offs Hit Black Box Today

Electronic Arts today laid off as many as 150 to 200 people today as part of the company's ongoing cut backs announced back in December, sources tell Kotaku.

These latest rumors come on the heels of word that there was a company-wide meeting today held at EA Canada to discuss the current state of the industry and the future of the company.


The cuts, we're told, were mostly made at Black Box, which employees more than 350 people. The news comes the day after the studio's Skate 2 hit shelves in North America.

Reached for comment earlier today, an Electronic Arts spokesman said the company will not be releasing any new information on their planned cuts until the company's scheduled earnings call on Feb. 3.

Update: We hear the actual number is about 115.
