Electronic Arts has confirmed to Gamasutra that its EA2D studio -- responsible for titles such as Dragon Age Legends and Mirror's Edge 2D -- has become part of BioWare, and been renamed BioWare San Francisco.

The move comes as part of a major executive and studio shuffle at the major publisher, which saw Frank Gibeau take over a newly created EA Labels superdivision, and EA Sports president Peter Moore promoted to EA COO.

"We’re focusing on building our intellectual properties/franchises into year-round business," EA CEO John Riccitiello said of the shake-up. "We've established our own platform, Origin, and we continue to grow our digital business."

Founded as a studio devoted to smaller browser-based casual titles, EA2D also developed tactical RPG Dragon Age Journeys and platformer The Fancy Pants Adventures, the latter of which was ported to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network.

Former Civilization series lead designer Soren Johnson worked with the studio as a designer on Facebook title Dragon Age Legends.

San Francisco becomes the sixth BioWare-branded location under parent company EA, alongside studios in Edmonton, Montreal, Austin, Fairfax Virginia (BioWare Mythic) and a customer service office in Galway, Ireland.
