Pandemic Studio Closure Confirmed By Internal Memo At EA

Damn, looks like Pandemic is history as an internal memo at EA has confirmed the closure of the studio. CEO Andrew Goldman, president Josh Resnick, and vice president Greg Borrud have all been laid off. EA's Nick Earl wrote in the memo:
“I want to make it clear that the Pandemic brand and franchises will live on. In the months ahead, we will announce plans for new games based on Pandemic franchises."

“This type of change can be difficult. But the situation calls for us to act decisively, to take control of our destiny and to run a stronger, more focused development operation. That’s how we will continue to make great games in our LA studios.”

That's what you get when you sell out to EA, i'm sure all the employees are glad the 5 execs got paid when EA acquired them while they get laid off
