Gaming giant Electronic Arts has laid off 10% of its entire workforce, according to a report from Kotaku. While EA itself didn’t reveal how many workers it laid off on Thursday, it did acknowledge an unspecified number of staff reductions that it said were part of “hard but essential changes” needed to help the company “focus on delivering great games and showing players around the world why to spend their time with us.” The layoffs at EA come after its former CEO John Riccitiello resigned last month and the company has made several high-profile public relations mistakes recently, including its notoriously botched launch of the new SimCity game.
