Development Studio EA Phenomic Closing Up Shop

Electronic Arts is closing up shop at the studio responsible for the SpellForce series of role playing games and the browser-based Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances, EA Phenomic. EA Phenomic is located in Ingelheim am Rhein, near to Frankfurt, Germany.

Electronic arts did not get specific on what will exactly happen to EA Phenom, but made some comments on its internal restructuring of the whole company.

"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."

"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"

At its peak, the company employed 60 people, and its work focused on BattleForge in 2009, Lord of Ultima in 2010, and Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances last year.
