Electronic Arts has shut down EA Phenomic, the German studio behind real-time strategy games BattleForge and Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances, according to a new report from Games Industry International.
Multiple sources told the site that the studio had closed, though in a statement, EA would not confirm the developer's status, instead only speaking to the company's ongoing realignment.
"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," EA said.
EA will report first quarter earnings on July 23, where more information may be revealed.
"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," the statement goes on.
"These are hard but essential changes as we focus on delivering great games and showing players around the world why to spend their time with us."
EA Phenomic is headquartered in Ingelheim am Rhein, Germany. The studio was founded in 1997 as Phenomic Game Development by Volker Wertich, who helped create the Settlers series. EA acquired the studio in 2006, rebranding it EA Phenomic.
The studio was also behind 2010's Lord of Ultima
