Electronic Art's Ghost Games studio in the UK, developer of the recently released Need for Speed: Rivals, was hit with layoffs this week, and an unannounced Need for Speed title it was working on has been put on hold.

According to a report by Polygon, EA let go of the contractors at the studio and offered full-time employees to either accept compensation, or to continue working from the office to support Dead Space developer Visceral.

Visceral is rumored to be working on a military shooter, who Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter previously suggested may become a brand extension for the Battlefield franchise. According the Polygon's report, this is a police-themed game code-named Havana, and is due out later this year.

Earlier this month we reported that Criterion Games founders Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry had left EA's Burnout and Need for Speed studio. Prior to their departure, Criterion Games was reduced to a headcount of 16 people, when most of its employees joined Ghost Games to work on Need for Speed: Rivals.

Bf3 and 4 are good, ME2 and 3 are good (k the ME3 ending is shit but stilllll).
im not saying EA are good, theyre shite, but for gods sake they are not the cause of all the worlds problems, they just make mediocre games and often over charge for it, oh no, a company is doing things to make as much money as possible with little concern for the consumer, this has never happened before, EA are the only company ever to do this, right right? the problem is, is that whatever EA do, people will hate them, they could make amazing games and give them away for free, and people would still find a way to hate them.
