Visceral Games, the developers behind Dead Space, Battlefield: Hardline, and an untitled Star Wars game, has been shut down by EA, according to a report from Kotaku.
In a statement provided by EA, Visceral Games' untitled Star Wars game will continue development at EA Vancouver. While the game was initially planned as a linear adventure game, under development at EA Vancouver the game is pivoting towards "a broader experience that allows for more variety and player agency."
In the same statement, EA notes that they're working on moving "as many of the team as possible to other projects and teams at EA," despite Visceral as a whole shuttering its studios. Where that leaves high profile team members such as former Uncharted writer Amy Hennig is unclear as of the moment.
Update 1: Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier reports that EA is still in talks with Hennig about what her next move is.
