The guys over at Lazygamer have received word from a number of local sources that the South African branch of Electronic Arts is no more. The local EA representation fulfilled the role of public relations and marketing; no actual games were developed in South Africa. Still, EA South Africa has always been one of the only international gaming companies with offices in our country. In terms of local distribution of EA games, in the past that has gone through a company called APEX so it’s not like EA games are about to disappear from shop shelves in South Africa. Still, if this rumour turns out to be true, it’s a loss for our local gaming scene.
