"We can confirm that the San Diego studio will be closing," a PR statement reads. "The day to day operations of Defiance will be moved to our Redwood City studio where it can be managed alongside Rift and our other in-development titles including ArcheAge and End of Nations . As part of this transition, we are working hard to ensure that a number of great people will be making the move from San Diego to the Bay Area and continue their work at Trion."
Trion World recently appointed Scott Hartman to their new CEO. His appointment brings many changes in direction to the studio responsible for the development of Defiance.
