Has EA Shut Down Medal of Honor Developer Danger Close?

A lack of updates and general dodgy behaviour from the publisher suggests so.

Following the Medal of Honor franchise being taken “out of rotation” late last year following the dismal critical reception of Medal of Honor: Warfighter, concerns are now being raised that developer Danger Close may have been shuttered in the wake of lay-offs at EA.

Yesterday, EA announced that it was closing down social games developer Playfish. When contacted by Videogamer, EA refused to comment on the status of Danger Close. The studio has seen a large number of staff leave in the past few months including studio head Greg Goodrich. The official Medal of Honor Twitter hasn’t been updated since February end either.

Responding to Videogamer’s requests, EA Corporate Communications’ Tiffany Steckler stated that, “EA is sharpening its focus to provide games for new platforms and mobile. In some cases, this involves reducing team sizes as we evolve into a more efficient organization. Unfortunately we don’t disclose impact on individual teams or locations.”

This is pretty much a general statement that was also used to comment on Playfish’s closure. Has Danger Close really been shut down? Stay tuned for more details.
