The 60 strong EA Phenomic team, based in Ingelheim am Rhein near to Frankfurt, Germany is apparently no more. Sources close to the studio have confirmed that the studio has been closed and all staff let go as part of the EA restructuring.
An EA spokesman said
As part of EA’s realignment in recent weeks, we have announced internally a small adjustment to some development staff to better focus our teams against priority growth areas. The decision to let people go is not something we take lightly and we are working to ensure that impacted employees are treated fairly and with respect for their contributions to EA, and with assistance to find other job opportunities.
These are hard but essential changes as we focus on delivering great games and showing players around the world why to spend their time with us.
Phenomic worked on real-time strategy games, including BattleForge, Lord of Ultima, and web based free to play RTS game Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances.
