News: PlayLinc creator now under EA's banner.



Game giant Electronic Arts has acquired Super Computer International to add to the company's technology base and become a part of EA's Online Technology Group. The Atlanta-based SCI (no relation to the Eidos SCi) is most famous for the creation of the AOL/Verizon online gaming and social network, PlayLinc, which includes instant messaging and game invites and has been previously used by EA.

EA has acquired all the company's technology assets and development team employees who will now become EA employees. Respectively, SCI CEO Jesper Jensen will remain the leader of the gang. ?SCI's development expertise is uniquely suited to our online needs,? said Nanea Reeves, EA VP. ?The team's technical leadership and creative approach is a great fit, and we're thrilled to have them join EA.?

So then, it could be that EA will integrate PlayLinc technology into their upcoming PC games. Keep a look out?
