Peggle and Plants vs Zombies developer, PopCap, has been hit with an unconfirmed number of layoffs.
It is unknown which teams the layoffs hit but EA confirmed in a statement that PC and Xbox shooter Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare were unaffected.
PopCap boss John Vechey commented on the decision to reduce staff at the developer by saying:
“The changes we made today at PopCap were painful and we’re sorry to lose some of our friends and colleagues. But it was also necessary in order to stay on course with our future plans for mobile games, live services and new IP.
“PopCap is a studio that made its name building great games that the world can fall in love with, and that’s what we’ll continue to do.”
