Electronic Arts today announced a notable merging of internal mobile studios, as iOS Dead Space developer IronMonkey Studios and Flight Control company Firemint have been brought together under one name.
The two studios, both based in Melbourne, Australia, will now be known as Firemonkeys, marking what EA touts as the largest game development studio in the Australia.
The aim of this new merger is to create a more focused team, said EA in a statement. The two studios will continue to work on separate products, but will now also collaborate on new games out of the EA Melbourne office.
Both Firemint executive producer Rob Murray and IronMonkey GM Tony Lay noted that they are excited at the prospect of sharing resources and technology with one another.
