Fight Night Team Forms Robomodo, Creating 'High-profile Extreme Sports Title'

Following last year's closure of Fight Night and Def Jam developer EA Chicago, 27 veterans of the once-dissolved team have reformed as independent studio Robomodo.

A "good chunk" of those 27 team members hail from the portion of EA Chicago that developed Fight Night Round 3, Robomodo president and unannounced game director Josh Tsui revealed to Gamasutra.

Members of the Fight Night Round 3 team that stayed with EA were relocated to EA Canada, where they developed the cartoony boxing game FaceBreaker (PS3, 360, Wii) and are presumed to be creating Fight Night Round 4.

The developer is currently at work on an unknown "high-profile extreme sports title" for Activision Blizzard, according to its official site, with Gamasutra further reporting that Activision has not "breathed word of [the new game] to the press or public yet."
