A source inside EA claims that the company has made its entire analysis and review team redundant, according to reports published today.
Around 20 employees formed part of the team, which conducted internal reviews of games from the perspective of outsiders such as games media, analysed Metacritic trends, and generally made sure EA’s games were as presentable as possible before journalists and players got their hands on them.
A former employee took to Twitter to vent her frustrations, but the initial tweet about the entire department being cut has been deleted.
The news follows April’s reveal that EA had cut a massive 10% of its workforce by winding up its Partners program.
