Electronic Arts has confirmed that the German studio, EA Phenomic, has closed. You may remember EA Phenomic from such titles as Spellforce and Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances. EA released a statement on the matter claiming that the layoffs were part of its restructuring that led to the close of other studios earlier this year.
[gn_quote style=”1″]As part of EA’s realignment in recent weeks, we have announced internally a small adjustment to some development staff to better focus our teams against priority growth areas. The decision to let people go is not something we take lightly and we are working to ensure that impacted employees are treated fairly and with respect for their contributions to EA, and with assistance to find other job opportunities.[/gn_quote]
Good luck to those that have been affected.
