It seems no one is safe from this economic mess. If Madden developer Tiburon can’t make things work, even with one of the biggest selling titles of the year (every year), then this truly is a sad state of affairs. It should be noted that Tiburon also handles the Tiger Woods and college franchises as well.
As already known, Mythic will also be feeling the brunt of the job cutting. Warhammer Online apparently isn’t doing well enough either, and jobs there are part of EA’s budget cuts.
