EA’s Firemonkeys Studio Suffers Layoff, Real Racing 4 Cancelled
This keeps happening huh?
EA has announced that they have done a massive round of layoffs towards Australian studio Firemonkeys recently.
Firemonkeys Studios,known for their mobile titles such as Real Racing 3 and The Sims Mobile, had lost 40-50 people within the recent layoff.
While that doesn’t sound much on paper but according to the Australian branch of Game Workers Unite, that counts as 5% of the Game Dev Scene there.
Current projects like Real Racing 4 have also been canceled by EA, in a bid to help them focus on the live services of existing titles.
And with that, we wish those effected by the layoffs well on their future endeavors.
