Studio Killer EA Shuts Down Visceral Games

22825 ratings | 376930 views
EA is a serial killer of studios. Two years ago I said Visceral was coming soon on the kill list. I wish I wasn't right. #VisceralJobs on Twitter for those at Visceral looking for work.

Looking at the pattern of Visceral, Bioware definitely looks next to the block. They fucked up Andromeda and are now making a new IP no one was fucking asking for. So when Anthem turns out to be a boring half baked Destiny clone, they'll be next to go... ffs

Im calling it now EA will kill BioWare and remaster Mass Effect the way George Lucas re released Star Wars! Konami, EA, Microsoft, all have top executives that need to be FIRED and never to return to the industry again and replaced with people that have brain tissue untainted by greed
T Timeler (4 months ago)
Maybe EA WANTS to make all the studios shut down. Studios like rockstar are too big for EA to buy. But it can snub any competition from studios like visceral if they just buy them out and then destroy them. It is by design, I think

BIOWARE already has a mausoleum reserved in the EA crypt, right next to Bullfrog and Maxis.

This video is great but I just need to add one more thing to it. I would like to say that Visceral Games did us (the fans of Dead Space) a massive favor. They knew that the series were going to turn into mindless zombies like assassin's creed for example that only care about making money so they put and end to the series by making and ending in the DLC for Dead Space 3. Now, I know that it's not the best ending but it's a fucking ending at least right?! It isn't like fucking half life that has become the biggest internet game meme nowdays all because the ending to episode 2 is a cliffhanger. It is dissapointing how people overlook this thing. But one thing is shure. Dead Space lived and died like a great game despite all of the flaws and hate in the third one. Press E to pay respects and spit on EA.

Bioware is on the list man. Give it 2 more years and it'll be fully digested. Then EA will look for new prey.

https://xbox.uservoice.com/forums/363186--new-ideas/suggestions/32376235-rehire-the-visceral-staff I think Microsoft should rehire the staff that was once Visceral Games. They have a pretty good track record of making some good games if they are just given the chance to do their own ideas.

If Dice is just going to shit out Battlefronts every other year as a mechanism for EA's insatiable greed, I can't really say that losing them would be all that bad.

I would love to see the minds of the companies who were screwed over by EA to create a groundbreaking game without EA. Someone needs to stop the monster called EA. They are too powerful and are ruining the core value of what gaming is: Fun.

You know what's the worst part here? Nowadays if you buy the old Dead Space games, your money is going to its new owner. The AAA fucker that didn't make it, and quite the opposite in fact, RUINED it and then shut down its actual maker.

If the CEO of EA was in the universe of Persona 5, he would have a fucking massive palace. I wonder how it would manifest though, maybe it would be a slaughterhouse or something.

I'm so tired of EA's cannibalistic tactics and mediocre products. I've not purchased anything from them since Dragon Age. I will continue boycotting them until things change there.
Troin (7 months ago)
Christopher Smith Thankfully, a change _is_ happening. They lost $3.1 billion in stocks from the poor sales of Battlefront 2, caused public debates about loot boxes, and will have to pay fines after loot boxes were deemed gambling. I like to think that if Visceral Games was never shut down (or at least, not yet, considering EA does this all the time), the backlash towards Battlefront 2 wouldn’t have been as huge nor have created such huge financial failures for EA.

Working for EA is like working for a druglord in middle-east or Asia, they have a certain quota for every day and if the sellers are failed to meet that quota they dispose of that poor sook. It's nothing less or more than Slavery

EA doesn't get it - if you could have a lot of moderately profitably IPs you could make more money in the long run, but now they just drain it - they are going to buy up ips and run out of them before long!!!
Fraser Souris (8 months ago)
Didn’t EA also just reshuffle many staff and projects from Viceral to other studios, particularly to EA Vancouver (their Star Wars games are still in production)? Didn’t Rockstar do a similar thing with their Vancouver studio?

Okay now that visceral is dead who's next? Is it bioware it's definitely not going to be dice because their Battlefield franchise is great. I don't know what other developer is under EA. But who's going to be the next victim can somebody answer me
Grohiik (8 months ago)
It almost doesn't matter really. Because of how they do business every game they make no matter how talented the studio is going to have at least one game that doesn't do amazingly. After that as we saw with this they will shift the team into something safer, IE something else that won't do amazingly, which will start a trend in their mind. Bottom line, every EA studio is just about guaranteed to hit this eventually.

im seriously glad horizon zero dawn is not from EA because sony actually took risks on releasing zero dawn and i actually like the game and it is only going to have just 1 DLC. but if it was EA they would be like no multiplayer? no microtransactions? no 5 more DLCs = don't release and shut down the whole studios cause i want more money.

Heh, you made one prediction off the top of your head and it happened. you're not a genius or anything. don't get a bloated ego over this. I mean, nothing was really happening with Dead Space anyway, and they pretty much fucked up Dead Space 3, so nobody was even really excited for future games, even if they may have wanted them, the outlook wasn't good regardless. Nothing to see here, just a fancy lad havin' a bit of a stroke. Take that sentence however you will....
Basilisk Space Marine (8 months ago)
I hope against hope EA doesn't get its claws into 2K and 4A games. Seeing EA basically do to game companies what Isaac Clarke does to Necromorphs, it would take a mere shove to destroy 2K, which is barely hanging on as it is after the kerfuffle that was Ken Levine dissolving Irrational. 4A is doing okay with the Metro 2033 games, but it's small and doesn't have power....a perfect target for the traction city EA has become in recent years.

It’s more like EA chewed them up, swallowed, digested, and shat out visceral if they are indeed keeping some of the developers to recycle on to other projects in its bloated body.

So isn't bioware making an open world scifi multiplayer based game with anthem? How does it make logical sense to take a single player linear Star Wars and make it into something that's going to compete directly with a planed tittle well under development?
