Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that Electronic Arts is looking to create a development center in Atlanta, Georgia, that could potentially employ 300 people. An EA spokesperson confirmed to the paper that Georgia, Louisiana and Florida are all being considered, as the company tries to cut California operation costs. The publisher gave no indication on when a decision would be made.
The information is in-line with rumors that Joystiq has been hearing about more EA changes on the horizon. When we contacted the company about specific studio closures and relocation, an EA spokesperson told us, "We have nothing more to add to this story."
