EA Confirms EA Chicago is Closing

A Chicago has gone down for the count. Kotaku can exclusively report that EA is closing the studio effective immediately. Word is that EA is working hard to place many of the 150+ employees at its other studios around the world. What does this mean for the future of the Def Jam fighting franchise and the forthcoming Marvel fighting game? Kotaku is still looking into that, but it sure seems like those games won't be coming anytime soon.

WTH! Nooooo. I hope it's not true. The last Def Jam wasn't great but EA Chicago is that last decent EA studio. It must be big EA's decision to get rid of all the good inside studios and focus on making inhouse crappy ports.

But really, hope it's not true. I really loved the idea of next-gen fighting game with Marvel Superheroes. Even like the PS2/Xbox Marvel Nemesis (Though it was from a different dev).
