EA FROM THE INSIDE II [Author: Lum the Mad]

Jinx from the Chosen has some bad news for some members of the current Earth and Beyond team — they’re being elbowed aside to make room for “more qualified” ex-UO2 developers. As quoted from the email scanned and available online (page 1 and 2):

This is an overstaffed list and we would pair [sic] down the headcount as necessary by releasing weaker/junior people currently on the team.

You mean EA is showing a lack of loyalty to its employees? Whoulda thunk it.

Of course, this memo optimistically assumes that said qualified UO2 people are chomping at the bit to come work for another division of EA. Word from folks I’ve talked to: not bloody likely.
