Sega Studios Australia to be shut down

Medieval II developer is not long for this world

Sega has confirmed to Kotaku that Sega Studios Australia will be closing down "later this year". The studio was formerly called Creative Assembly Australia, but the Brisbane-based studio was renamed in the summer of 2011.

Under the Creative Assembly name, the studio was previously known for Medieval II: Total War and Stormrise, but after the name change it developed the official London 2012 video game.

GamesIndustry International hopes those affected by the impending studio closure find new employment soon.

I hate studio closures, It always sucks to hear that talented people are out of work.

Our first title is about to go into development at BlueBlaze Studio, a small Indie start up in the UK. If any of you guys that are affected by the closure fancy a complete change of scenery I would be happy to hear from you.
