Logo descriptions by EnormousRat, Mysterious_Guy

: Pandemic was a development studio founded in 1998 and headquartered in Los Angeles and Australian Brisbane. In 2005 Pandemic entered a partnership venture with BioWare, which then led to the acquisition of both companies by Electronic Arts. In February 2009, the Australian studio of Pandemic was shut down, and later that year the whole company was dismissed due to the major cut of 1500 jobs performed by Electronic Arts.
