According to a report on GamesRadar, BioWare San Francisco – the studio formerly known as EA2D
and responsible for titles like Dragon Age Legends
and Mirror's Edge 2D –
has been closed by EA, leaving between 25 to 30 employees
jobless. Citing a source inside the studio, the report suggests EA felt it was "too expensive" to make mobile games in Redwood Shores, CA.
Joystiq has followed up with EA to check the veracity of this claim. Dragon Age Legends
' servers were shut off last year, but the developers at BioWare San Francisco were kind enough to make an offline version
available for fans to continue to play.
