EA to employ 500 in China. Jeff Brown: “it isn”t outsourcing”

EA’s Vice President for Corporate Communications, Jeff Brown

According to this article in the Mercury News, EA is expanding its operations in China and may hire as many as “500 artists, developers, and programmers by the end of the decade.” In the face of all the recent whining from EA employees and their spouses about the sweat shop conditions at EA (80 hour weeks with no overtime) one wonders if this isn’t part of a more general outsourcing plan. Jeff Brown says it isn’t about outsourcing, which makes me think it probably is. (I think they should have found someone else to deliver this particular message.)
