Square Enix admits to shutting down Battlestations developer Eidos Hungary

It apparently happened several months ago but today Square Enix Europe CEO Phil Rogers admitted publiclly that the publisher shut down their development studio Eidos Hungary. The team, which was acquired when Square Enix bought Eidos a year ago, is best known for developing the WWII action-RTS games Battlestations Midway and its sequel Battlestations Pacific.

Develop Online chatted with Rogers who stated, "We took the decision back in October" to close the developer. He added, "We were pleased with Eidos Hungary but I think we realised that to be first or best in the RTS genre was going to be really challenging. It wasn't necessarily something we were going to win." He added that they are not moving forward with more games in the Battlestations series.
