OverviewEA Phenomic was a game development studio of Electronic Arts, Inc. Headquartered in Ingelheim am Rhein, Germany, the company was founded as Phenomic Game Development in 1997 by Volker Wertich, known for the Settlers series, where he played a major role in the development of the first and third parts. Since its founding, the company has focused entirely on the SpellForce franchise of fantasy strategy games.
In August 2006 the company was acquired by Electronic Arts and renamed EA Phenomic. After the acquisition the studio worked primarily on real-time strategy games, including BattleForge (2009), Lord of Ultima (2010), and Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances. The latter was a free-to-play browser version of the classic series that attracted 1 million players in its first two months. In July 2013 it was confirmed that the studio had been closed.
