The Galway facility, which is thought to already house about 400 customer support workers, is to expand its responsibilities across numerous EA games.
The publisher's second-in-command, Peter Moore, told CVG that it was "great to get some positive news considering we often get a lot of negative news about places closing down".
Opening in 2011 with a ceremony led by key BioWare executives, EA's Galway facility will now provide customer support for a number of EA games, including the upcoming FIFA 13.
It will offer multilingual support around the clock, Moore added.
