Electronic Arts dismisses more than 350 marketing employees and other departments

Electronic Arts has announced a round of layoffs.

After the events of the last few weeks with Activision Blizzard, the company prepares the discharge of 350 employees from the marketing, analysis and publication departments Kotaku.

Electronic Arts has a total of 9,000 employees, so this figure represents about 4 percent of its workforce. Chris Bruzzo, who is responsible for marketing in EA, has sent an email to his employees who have reached Kotaku, explaining that the goal is to consolidate those departments, improve customer service and change some of their international strategies. which includes closing offices in Russia and Japan.

"Today we have taken important steps as a company to face our challenges and prepare for the opportunities that come," the company said in a statement. "As we see how the world around us is changing, it is clear that we need to change that, we make deliberate movements to improve our commitments, refine our organization and meet the needs of our players."

"As part of this, we have changed our marketing and publishing organization, our operating teams, and we are reducing our current presence in Japan and Russia to focus in other ways to serve players in those markets. We are very focused on improving the quality of our games and services and in the midst of everything we do will continue to be good games, and we think different ways to surprise and inspire our players. "

"It's a tough day, the changes we make today will have an impact on 350 employees of our 9,000 company. They are important, but very difficult decisions, and we don't take them lightly. " We are friends and colleagues in EA, we appreciate and appreciate the contributions from around the world and we do everything we can to make sure we care for our people and help them in this period to find a new opportunity . "

"This is our top priority."

It's a sad news that comes right away Activision will announce the dismissal of 800 people, 8% of its workforce, despite achieving "record results" in their revenue.
