EA makes layoffs at Codemasters

US publishing giant Electronic Arts has made job cuts at racing specialist Codemasters.

That's according to IGN, which reports that an undisclosed number of redundancies have been confirmed by EA. It's also unclear which parts of the racing specialist have been impacted by these layoffs.

EA purchased Codemasters for $1.2 billion back in 2021. The company says that these job cuts are being made to "meet evolving business needs and priorities." 

"Our business is constantly changing as we strive to deliver amazing games and services that keep our players engaged, connected, and inspired," an EA spokesperson said.

"At times, this requires the company to make small-scale organisational changes that align our teams and resources to meet evolving business needs and priorities. We continue to work closely with those affected by these changes, providing appropriate support throughout this process."
