When EA Chicago shut down last year, savvy gamers were disappointed that they wouldn't be seeing any more games out of the respected Fight Night team (not to mention that they were working on a now-canned Marvel fighting game).
But what most didn't know was that when EA shut down its Chicago studio, the publisher held a large job fair for the employees who were laid off. And it was EA rival Activision that swooped in almost immediately and picked up the 27 founders of Robomodo, which officially announced its existence on Tuesday.
"Activision came in faster than anyone else and got us up and running ... It was a very quick move on their part," said Robomodo director Joshua Tsui (pictured) in a phone interview with Edge.
