EA Announces Lots Of Sales, Layoffs

2Q09 report is out today:

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, an MMO from EA’s Mythic Entertainment
studio, sold 1.2 million copies in the quarter – with over 800 thousand current players.

That would make Warhammer the 3rd most popular Western MMO (Runescape being #2). However the wording is… odd.

EA announced today a cost reduction plan, which will include the elimination of approximately
6% of the Company’s workforce.

Ouch. That would be around 540 people.
