EA are employing more people in Europe though. Seen a few adverts for quite a few positions recently.

They are probably just shifting resources so they can have more a developer presence over here. Same with all large corporations, they have an expense budget and use it where they feel it suits them best at the time.

I'd never ever buy and EA game. Pure corporate greed right there.

Their half-assed games are a joke. They are the McDonalds of the game development world.
