If you’ve really enjoyed the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows and Half-Blood Prince games that have come out over the past two or three years, and I mean come on who hasn’t right? Then you’ll be sad to know that EA is considering closing down the developer studio behind these games, Bright Light.
“After a review of all current and future projects, Electronic Arts has started a formal consultation process with its Bright Light employees over the proposed closure of the studio,” an EA Spokesperson said. “The proposed changes will help centralize development on future projects, reduce development costs and will allow for better knowledge and talent sharing within the organisation.”
“Employees that are impacted will be considered for positions at other EA Studios including those in the UK. The UK is a vital centre of game development for EA and we intend to maintain a strong presence here,” they added.”
