Earlier this week, Electronic Arts announced the closing of their EA Chicago studio.
On Tuesday, a former EA Chicago employee who wished to be kept anonymous contacted 1UP about the closing and explain his heartbreak. "I just got home from being laid off. It was a heart breaking day at the studio today, as this news came out of left field entirely," they said. "I've read a lot of the comments made on many sites about the closure by ignorant people spouting happiness that an EA studio had closed and that it's just business and all that. It's really very difficult to read so of those comments because I knew everyone at the studio and how dedicated to their craft that they were."
