Poor game sales? Star Wars? What’s to blame? Not much telling.
The report claims between 500-1000 employees will be affected. That’s a lot of people, even for a company as big as Electronic Arts.
Startup Grind’s report goes on to speculate the layoffs are a result of a disappointing 2011 in which a few hit games (like Battlefield 3) had their sales overshadowed by an overspend on marketing, expensive acquisitions and disappointing subscriber numbers for big-budget MMO Star Wars: Old Republic.
