Two days after the publisher admitted that it will produce fewer games next year, The Globe and Mail reports that Electronic Arts has scrapped plans to open a third development studio in Vancouver, B.C.

EA already operates two studios in the Vancouver area, EA Black Box (Need for Speed) and EA Vancouver (Skate 2). The new studio had not yet been staffed, so no jobs were lost as a result of the about-face in plans. As for the publisher's future in the area, EA spokesperson Colin Mcrae said, "We continue to be firmly rooted in Vancouver." Hey, at least there's today's Brütal Legend news to be happy about, EA watchers.
