Danger Close, the Los Angeles studio responsible for the last two Medal of Honor games, is officially closed, Electronic Arts confirmed at E3 this week. The studio was dissolved and some of its staff were transferred to other EA studios, including the new Star Wars: Battlefront developers DICE Los Angeles, EA Games label executive vice president Patrick Söderlund revealed to Eurogamer.

“Danger Close as it was doesn’t exist anymore,” Söderlund said. “There are people who left LA, people who work with DICE LA, and there are some who work in other parts of EA, as always when something gets dismantled.” Danger Close’s last game, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, was considered a critical and commercial failure, and just as analysts predicted, it wound up killing the franchise.

EA revealed the new Battlefront title during E3, following news in May that the publisher had partnered with Disney for future Star Wars games. DICE Los Angeles, the studio behind the new game, is made up of former employees of Danger Close as well as staff from other parts of EA, including some from Stockholm, according to Eurogamer.
