EA Phenomic, the Germany-based real-time strategy studio behind titles like Battleforge and Lord of Ultima, has reportedly been shut down. The company was originally founded as Phenomic Game Development back in 1997, and acquired by Electronic Arts in 2006. Its latest release was Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances last year. According to sources speaking with GI.biz, the 60-person studio has now been closed. Although EA would not comment specifically on whether there was truth to the story, the company noted that it is currently realigning its entire business and letting some staff go. Gamasutra has contacted EA for clarification, but has so far received only confirmation that the layoffs are real.
