Reports (via GameFront) claim EA owned PopCap Games (home of Bejeweled, Plants vs. Zombies, Peggle, Zuma and more) have laid off around 30 employees.

General manager John Vechey released the following statement:

"The changes we made today at PopCap were painful and we're sorry to lose some of our friends and colleagues. But it was also necessary in order to stay on course with our future plans for mobile games, live services and new IP. PopCap is a studio that made its name building great games that the world can fall in love with, and that's what we'll continue to do."

According to a statement made to Polygon PopCap HD - the PC/Console team responsible for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was unaffected.
