Kotaku is reporting that EA is shutting down the Brisbane (Australia) office of Pandemic Studios. The source cites that Pandemic Studios are being ‘let go’ instead of getting laid off. Pandemic is being allowed to retain all employees, keep all their equipment, and become independent. The future of Pandemic Studios is still uncertain, whether they fold under, unable to find a publisher, or possibly they will find one, and continue to develop games. No word yet on the future of the Los Angeles office.

Pandemic Studios is best known for their work on the Destroy All Humans! series.
