Gaming-Age, GameSpot and other sites are reporting EA's record QUARTERLY income of $1.23 billion, a 48% increase from this time last year. It's also that fateful time of year again. Each spring as the EA fiscal year comes to a close and EA realizes its massive profits, it's time for them to figure out where they can consolidate. And each year they do. It's a sad time this year for Westwood Studios, the famous makers of Command & Conquer, Earth & Beyond and many others. Their Las Vegas operations will be completely shut down by March 31. Some of their people and franchises will be moving to a new Los Angeles campus. It probably makes some sort of business sense to someone in California, but I have to wonder.. there's not many intact original studios left in EA's massive empire. Who's next? Maxis?
