Cuts at PopCap, THQ, and Funcom

As noted on Kotaku, tweets like this one point to layoffs at EA-owned PopCap Studios, which PopCap confirms and explains. On VG247 they have details from an email purportedly from THQ saying 20 marketing and production jobs are being cut. Finally, Polygon has word of cuts at Funcom, saying the developer of The Secret World confirmed the layoffs, but would not comment on reports that this impacted about half their staff.

The creator of PvZ did indeed lose his job. I hate EA, here comes another lifeless sequel.
I honestly don't understand why they'd do that. Surely such a massive success would give him a lot of leeway? If he could recreate that success then they'd literally make millions and even if he couldn't I could still see him being very useful to existing projects.
