Maxis Emeryville, the California-based video game studio, was closed down by publisher Electronic Arts (EA) on March 4, 2015.
This means the end of an era, as the studio is known for making the SimCity and Sims series of games. EA stated that they are consolidating Maxis development into their existing studios. However, EA may be redefining 'consolidation' as a former staff member mentioned everyone was let go.
EA has been criticized in the past for its handling of Maxis titles, perhaps most notably the SimCity 2013 launch fiasco.
Когда там уже EA-капец? :}
