Bright Light Studio closed by EA

Written by David Stellmack



Some staff moved to other EA owned studios


Bright List Studios, best known for the Harry Potter games, has been closed by Electronic Arts. Apparently, the axe fell very late last year; and the company was able to keep the entire thing pretty quiet. The exact number of lay-offs is unknown at this time.

Sources tell us that a number of the developers were relocated to other EA studios, with some developers finding a home at Criterion and PlayFish. Other developers apparently opted to get off the EA train and have moved on to Supermassive Games, Jagex, as well as some other studios in the area.

EA is not commenting on any specifics yet, other than to say that the consultation period had ended, and the studio was closed late last year.
