EA Lays Off 'Small Number' Of Staff Working On Boom Blox Title

Oh dear, EA has laid off several employees working on development of Steven Spielberg’s new Boom Blox title. A spokesperson for the publisher commented:
“This is a routine event and not in any way related to EA’s announced restructuring. Moving projects to leverage development strengths is common in global studio organizations."

“In this case, a small project has been moved from EA Los Angeles, to the EA Bright Light Studio in Guildford, UK, where the Harry Potter franchise and several of the Hasbro properties are developed."

“A small number of employees were impacted by the decision. All eligible employees will receive severance and outplacement assistance."

“EA remains fully committed to maintaining its EALA studio which is the headquarters for the mobile division as well as for development of franchises like Medal of Honor, Command & Conquer and others.”
Lets hope they find a new home as soon as possible.
