Report: EA Closes BioWare San Francisco, Lays Off Staff

GamesRadar is reporting that BioWare San Francisco has been shut down and all of its 25 – 30 employees have been laid off, a source within the company tells the publication. The studio, formerly known as EA2D, developed the Facebook game Dragon Age: Legends and Mirror's Edge 2D for browsers.

GamesRadar's source claims that Electronic Arts apparently came to the conclusion that it was "too expensive" to develop mobile games in Redwood Shores, CA.

Electronic Arts has not confirmed the layoffs or the closure of the studio at this early hour. We'll have more on this story as it develops.
