Umm…I know people in EA and when they finished their last game they were all given time off. As far as I know, they’re currently working normal working hours. Don’t let the constant horror stories make it worse than it actually is. Some places have problems, yes, but its not always the case.
Another benefit that I know EA do and we do in Core ( i assume its an Eidos wide thing ) is that because it is known you may have to do lots of overtime and get stressed, their is the option of taking a sabbatical.
