“Microsoft Game Studios has undergone a redeploying of resources in its Austin, Texas-based Digital Anvil studio and will centralize the studio’s resources in Redmond, Washington,” reads the official statement.
“We are working closely with current Digital Anvil employees to place each team member in a position on the Microsoft Game Studios team in Redmond if they so choose. This redeployment of resources will be finalized on January 31, 2006.”
Digital Anvil has been quiet for some time. The studio’s last game was released back in 2003—the PC title turned Xbox exclusive Brute Force.
Digital Anvil was founded by Chris Roberts of Wing Commander fame although he left the company shortly after it was acquired by Microsoft.
