Well, the inevitable has happened. Some critics thought that we would be bought out by a publisher for our talent. It has happened. Here is the official press release:

March 30th, 2005 - Halifax, NS

Electronic Arts would like to formally announce the creation of Spearin Studios (SS). SS has been formed from the talent working on the former Insurgency Modification for Half-Life 2 and will be based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada under the direction of Andrew Spearin and under the supervision and advisory by EA's Brent Goodwin. The initial project that SS will be working on is to be announced shortly, however at this time it can be released that Valve Software's Source Engine has been licensed to Spearin Studios for the project.

Spearin Studios currently stands with 18 full-time developers and is looking to expand this number to 25 employees working at the Halifax-based office. SS will specialise in the development of realistic, military based, first person shooters. The first title has already commenced development and more details will be released soon.
