Seems to be that after EA spent 300 million to buy a social gaming developer, they no longer have enough money to keep a few other studios open. According to the sources, EA Redwood Shores, Tiburon, Mythic, and Black Box have all been affected to some degree. Supposed to be up to 1300 employees laid off by March 2010. Says they are "restructuring" their company and saving money in the long run. Yeah but, with Tiburon being affected, how will they improve Madden each year?
Thoughts on this seemingly recent trend in the games industry?
