EA is hurting, and they need to make some money. How do you save cash after already cutting back on over a thousand employees? I guess you make fewer games…
EA currently publishes more than 50 titles and plans to cut that back to about 40 next fiscal year to focus on quality games. Riccitiello said he could see EA publishing even fewer titles going forward. “Thirty wouldn’t shock me at some point in the future,” Riccitiello said at the Reuters Global Media Summit in New York on Tuesday. - Reuters
Of course, no word on what games or plans EA has when they get into these cuts. 30 games from EA in the next year as a possibility. That still seems like a lot, doesn’t it!?
