    by who EA??

    I know reflections was acquired by Atari but i thought it kept its name. Basically, i was wondering about a games studio which used to make alot of strategy games or tycoon games but nowadays make alot of pc\xbox games. But i cant remember the name.

    I know theres a company called Rage which liquidised and re-opened with alot of the same staff about a month later under the name of Venom games.

    No i was just wondering, seems to be alot of jobs being advertised by a newcastle dev house and i wondered who they were.
