EA has told MCV that job losses subsequent to the closure of its Chertsey facility will be ‘minimal'.
As reported on the cover of today's MCV, a leaked email from earlier in the week by EA CEO John Riccitiello to his staff revealed that ‘every studio, group and division of the company has been tasked to review its overall headcount'.
However, when asked about the potential for redundancies after the closure of Chertsey, an EA spokesperson told MCV:
The staff from our Chertsey facility will now be relocated to our new Guildford office nearby. This office will now become our hub.
This is not a shutdown by any means. There will only be minimal job losses, and EA's staff are fully aware of this.”
