EA has confirmed that it's closed the doors of PopCap's Dublin studio, affecting more than 90 jobs in the process. Having been active for six years, PopCap Dublin had been experiencing positive growth with 60 employees in 2011 and more than 90 by 2012.

"96 people have been affected by the decision," EA confirmed in a statement. "PopCap has provided outplacement support and many employees have offers in other parts of PopCap, at EA or new opportunities with technology partners in Ireland."

A spokesperson for PopCap Dublin affirmed that Europe "remains a critical market for PopCap and we will continue to grow our presence through centralised services operated from our North American offices and through the extensive European EA network".

The spokesperson went on to add that "Worldwide, PopCap is still growing, and intends to continue hiring and developing current staff. We will continue to invest in new games, platforms, and markets while we expand the reach of hit franchises like Bejeweled and Plants vs. Zombies."
