Pandemic studios closed

Pandemic studios main staff have been set for a new studio named EALA as the former studio has been definitely closed. EA’s results this year haven’t met expectations and among many difficult decisions they closed the studio responsible of Battlefront and Mercenaries among many.

Although delivering great games such as the before mentioned Star Wars: Battlefront series the quality of the games of late had dropped. Mercenaries 2 was a succesful game from a sales point of view though it carried many bugging problems of all sort; with The Lord of the Rings: Conquest they made the worst adaptation of the films since EA bought the licence.

Doubt has been created over this about Pandemic’s last game due for december The Saboteur but it seems that this black and white second world war sandbox will see itself in the market as expected.

EALA will commence to work on a sequel to “Mercenaries 2” titled for now “Mercs Inc.” as soon as “The Saboteur” is out. Senior VP Nick Earl said:

“We are very excited to announce a new instalment in the popular Mercenaries series because it demonstrates our continued commitment to Pandemic’s rich catalogue of intellectual properties,”
