Kotaku is rumouring that EA has shut its Pandemic Studio in Brisbane, Australia.

The ‘Destroy All Humans!’ developer was apparently “set free” allowing the team to retain its original IP and equipment.

“It was more of a ‘Find a new publisher. Good luck.’ kind of thing,” says the source.

Last year it emerged that The Dark Knight game-of-the-movie was canned because Pandemic Studios “couldn’t keep up.”

We wish Pandemic the best of luck in its future endeavours.
