Bright Light, the studio behind the Harry Potter franchise among other games, has had its light extinguished as EA has confirmed they have closed down
the studios. The studio actually closed late last year.
The folks who were working will be considered for other positions so let's hope they all find something quickly. Some of them have already moved on to other opportunities so that's good.
I was never into the games so I don't know how well they did, but it always sucks to anytime you hear a studio gets closed down. Unless, of course, the studio just makes horrible, horrible games.
