EA Phenomic Shuts Its Doors

By breadbitten15-07-2013

EA Phenomic, developers of the free-to-play Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances (not to be confused with EA's upcoming free-to-play C&C game simply titled Command & Conquer) recently shuttered the doors to their offices laying off its 60 employees, as a part of an elaborate internal restructuring move by the publisher. The studio was originally started as Phenomic Games in 1997 before falling prey--I mean, "being acquired" by the omniscient gravity of the mighty and righteous Electronic Arts.

Speaking to GamesIndustry International an EA representative said, "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."

Seeing a studio being closed is never ever an easy thing, but at the same time maybe it's a good thing that they aren't working for EA anymo—oh wait, I meant PRAISE EA!
