EA Confirms The Closure Of Visceral Games

On Friday a source from EA’s Melbourne studio, Visceral Games, told Kotaku that the studio was being shut down this week. Today, EA has confirmed the closure.

An EA spokesperson told MCV: “With no active project in development at that location, we’ve decided to close the Visceral Melbourne office. They are talented individuals and may find other roles elsewhere in EA, if they choose.”

“EA continues to maintain its mobile studios in Melbourne which are both thriving and hiring.”

As we understand, the closure of Visceral does not affect any of EA’s other Australian studios like Firemint and Iron Monkey.
