A report over on GamePron, citing a tweet from the Melbourne Chapter of International Game Developers’ Association, states that the Melbourne, Australia arm of Visceral Games may be shuttered come Monday. Details on the closure are next to nil at the moment, but according to the tweet: “I’m hearing Visceral are meeting on Monday with HR whether it’s closure then or some redundancies first remains to be seen.” EA owns Visceral, which has studios in Redwood Shores, California and Montreal, Canada as well, and are best-known for Dead Space, Godfather 2, and Dante’s Inferno. EA’s website states the studio was working on new, unannounced triple-A title IP, and when reached for comment from Gamespot, the firm said it does not comment on rumors.
