There's only one thing I can say, holy shit if that's true. After the Gamasutra article on the industry's working conditions 2 years ago and their comments being filled by well known devs who related stories of suicide due to the brutal work environment that is working for a publisher nowadays I suspect this picture may unfortunately not be fake.
Yeah, I worked for EA for just under a year before I had to quit. It really was horrible and I don't expect that's changed anymore than they've legally been forced to change. I'd wager the old Russian gulags were very similar.
