The Brisbane-based developer was established in 2002 as Creative Assembly Australia and was behind games like Medieval II: Total War, its Kingdoms expansion, and Stomrise.

The outfit was rebranded Sega Studios Australia in May 2011 and most recently built London 2012: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games.

Sega cut 37 jobs at the studio last year.

It is not clear how many staffers will be affected by the impending closure or what will happen to any projects the company is currently working on.
