Electronic Arts continues to lay off employees from its numerous studios. This time the publisher has laid off 50 employees at its studio based in Hyderabad, India, according to reports from Facebook.

"EA is sharpening its focus to provide games for new platforms and mobile," said a member of Electronic Art's corporate communications team Tiffany Steckler in a statement to MCV India. "In some cases, this involves reducing team sizes as we evolve into a more efficient organisation."

"These are difficult decisions to let go of good people who have made important contributions to EA, and whenever possible we retrain or relocate employees to new roles.  Streamlining our operations will help ensure EA is bringing the best next-generation games to players around the world."

Hyderabad studios focused on developing mobile games. This is the second studio to be affected in the region. Gameloft had previously closed its studio in the city with 200 employees laid off.
