There’s a bit of a depressing rumor floating about today, which states that EA plans to announce the closure of Pandemic later today.

Sources close to Kotaku stated that almost all of the 200 staffers at the LA studio will be laid-off and the rest sent to other teams within EA.

It was also revealed by the source that EA Montreal will take over the remaining IP from Pandemic, which includes putting the finishing touches on The Saboteur.

While we’ve no reason to doubt this, what with EA laying-off left and right, its unconfirmed until EA announces something.
