PopCap Games has decided to close its Dublin office in a move that will affect 96 staff.

In August, PopCap said it was reviewing its operation in the capital and consulting with employees.

The company is owned by EA Games, which last week announced it was going to create 300 jobs in Galway in addition to its 400 existing employees.

In a statement to RTÉ News, PopCap said it had provided "outplacement support and many employees have offers in other parts of PopCap, at EA or new opportunities with technology partners in Ireland".
