New Swiss HQ for EA Europe?

Electronic Arts is offering no official words as yet on growing rumours that it is about to shift its European HQ from the UK to Geneva, Switzerland.

It will retain its iconic, lakeside Chertsey office, but, according to sources close to the publisher, it plans to devote more space to developers as it expands its UK studio – possibly even moving the recently acquired Criterion team in as well, rather than leave it in a separate location not 20 miles up the road.

It isn’t clear how many jobs will be affected, but a major shift of power could be a blow to the UK’s status as the fulcrum of the European industry. The move is said to be scheduled for summer ‘06.
