Report: EA's Danger Close Studio Potentially Facing Closure

By - Source: Fudzilla | B 25 comments

The Developers behind Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor: Warfighter may be next on EA's chopping block.

Following disappointing financial results and the resignation of CEO John Riccitiello, EA has sought to “sharpen their focus” and restructure the company. Rumors have now surfaced that Danger Close Games (formerly EA LA) may be facing closure and that a number of its key developers have already departed.

It is no secret that the studio was facing an increasingly uncertain future due to the transfer of Command & Conquer to BioWare's Victory Games, the lackluster reception to 2012's Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and EA's subsequent announcement that they would be placing an indefinite hold on its recently rebooted franchise.

Though EA has yet to provide any official comment on the status of the studio, we expect to have conclusive information on its fate once EA has finished its restructuring program.

    I can't feel bad for the studio that made Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight.

    Kinda expected this given that EA is forcing users to use battlelog and origin in some way, shape, or form. Also not happy with EA's handling of C&C Red Alert 3. RA was one of the few things from EA that I had high hoped for, but after I saw the units they created it made me sick with what they did to that series.

    Anyone and everyone who made the decision to partner with EA deserves the fate of the free market - the consumers choice - DON'T PARTNER WITH EA.

    EA beat out BP as the worst company in the world because they buy and kill everything they love. Something they'll never understand. Eat a dick EA. Eat all the dicks.

    I have the feeling that very few people actually understand what the hell is going on.

    I could almost excuse that, but the MoH reboot and those flat-out offensive Linkin Park trailers are a capital crime. I say let them burn.

    Tomshardware, one of the popular feedback sites with a community having half a brain, i wonder if any EA personal would have the guts to read the consistent backlash they deserve.

    Obviously no.. EA have iron sites on kiddies and their poor mums and dads for hyper disobedient unemployed brats who want their next cod kick.

    I'm not really upset just mucking around but it sure does seem like it ;P

    Ps. I bought BF3 for 5 bucks!!!

    Yet another former company that couldn't keep up with EA's demands for a 4 month game development cycle.

    Should have stuck with what you had going and stayed in the WW2 genre, fools.

    This is exactly what happens when a company gets too damn big for its' own good, the little guys get screwed. EA sucks.

    EA can die a slow horrible death for what they did to Westwood and the C&C Franchise...
