EA to Shift to "Low-Cost" Development

According to a Nasdaq report, EA Chief Financial Officer Eric Brown said that EA plans to mitigate some of their thousands of announced layoffs by opening more positions in cheaper development centers.

"We will be hiring back positions in low-cost locations to maintain capacity," he said at the BMO Capital Markets Digital Entertainment Conference in New York, which was broadcast over the Internet.

Naturally this could affect C&C's future in a major way. With many reports stating that the C&C team was cut, it appears the only way forward for C&C might be from a much smaller development studio, with much less capacity and support.
