Wii-loving EA acquires Headgate Studios

Next Generation reports that the studio, which is behind the recent EA golf title Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07, will be rebranded as EA Salt Lake. Other titles from the developer include the PC versions of the Godfather and Madden NFL 07.

Although it has not been confirmed, it is expected that the team is already at work on the Wii version of Tiger Woods 07 which is due out early next year.

“We’ve spent a lot of time with Wii, and I love it,” Headgate CEO Vance Cook said. “It’s an exciting new platform, but I think it caught the whole gaming world by surprise. At E3, that’s where all the lines were and I think Electronic Arts decided that they needed to put more effort into it, and they wanted to do it quickly.”
