Dragon Age: Legends developer Bioware San Francisco has reportedly shut down.

IGN confirm the rumours that were surfacing, reporting that the studio was “too expensive” for mobile development to maintain.

BioWare San Francisco focused on social and casual games for web and mobile, including Dragon Age: Legends and Mirror’s Edge. So the news comes as a surprise considering how popular mobile gaming has become.

We had previously heard of a disgruntled staffer who expressed turmoil with management, and the studio was also reported to have recently lost a handful of employees to other studios.
