Visceral Games zatvorio vrata

The Melbourne, Australia branch of Dead Space developer Visceral Games has been closed.

A post on the Melbourne Chapter of the International Game Developers’ Association’s Twitter feed confirms the closure and sends “best wishes to the 21 devs now out of a job.”

We’ve reached out to EA’s Australian office but EA has no comment at this stage.

Two days ago an anonymous source from Visceral in Melbourne told Kotaku Australia that management had informed staff that the studio will be closing on Monday September 19.

According to the source Visceral Games had been working on a AAA game for Xbox 360 and PS3 for the last three years.

Visceral Games, formerly known as EA Redwood Shores, is located in Redwood Shores, California but has branch offices in Montreal, Canada and (until today) Melbourne, Australia. Visceral Melbourne was reportedly involved in producing Dead Space, The Godfather II and Dante’s Inferno.

The collapse is the most recent in a spate of console developer closures in Australia, largely due to the strong Australian dollar.

Bas steta!!!:frowning:

Pa dobro, to je ipak samo jedan branch. Voleo bih da EA nastavi sa produciranjem igara sa horor tematikom. Dead Space je genijalan, ali Dantes Inferno i Godfather su ispali prilicno razocaravajuce…
