EA Salt Lake Hit by Multiple Layoffs

The development studio responsible for Risk: Factions and several Sims expansions was forced to let an undisclosed number of employees go.

“EA Salt Lake is becoming largely focused on mobile development, including The Sims and other projects,” an EA representative has confirmed of the move to eliminate redundancies. “Recent shifts unfortunately resulted in the reduction of a few teams.  As we look to match skills with opportunities, some staff will be offered other positions at EA, while others will leave the company.”

The studio will remain open.
