Following the cancellation of EA Sports’ NBA Elite 11 (which was THIS CLOSE to releasing), EA Sports has done some behind the scenes reshuffling at their major studios. The corporate heads of their Tiburon and Canada studios — Philip Holt and Moira Dang — have both been terminated, and EA has issued the following statement…
“We’re making organizational changes to our development team at EA SPORTS that will be better for the franchises and better for our people.
We continue to proactively evolve our team to better position ourselves with improved product quality and growth in revenue for our shareholders, to share technology and lower our development costs, and to pioneer new innovation in digital experiences for our consumers.
As part of this transition, we have eliminated the site-based GM roles at EAC and Tiburon.”
It’s always a shame to see someone lose their job, but hopefully EA will recover and have a better year next time around. Meanwhile…anyone excited for NBA Jam next week?
