The company was acquired by Electronic Arts in 2000 from the film studio (and Microsoft, which had part ownership of the company)[1] and in 2003 merged with the Westwood Studios (the original creators of the Command & Conquer Series) and EA Pacific (originally Westwood Pacific) to create the new Electronic Arts Los Angeles development studios.[2] Soon after many of the staff who worked at Westwood Studios came back together to form Petroglyph Games.[3]
