It could be perceived as yet another Aussie dev studio biting the dust, and to a small degree it is. But resilience is the mark of any true-blue Australian, and for the core blokes out of 3 Blokes Studios, their recent closure at the hand of parent company RockYou only means they're moving on to new opportunities and hopefully greener pastures.

"The good news is we do have another opportunity, it's just a couple of weeks away before it is announced," 3 Blokes' George Fidler told Polygon of the closure. "I don't think it will be the end of the team. Our employment has ceased with RockYou and we will be reemployed under a new organisation in the near future."

3 Blokes Studios was a Facebook developer responsible for RTS titles such as Galactic Allies and Galactic Traders. They were recently bought out by RockYou to strengthen the RockYou game portfolio by including more core titles, but a recent change in the RockYou business strategy saw them closing the 3 Blokes Studios down.

"We have great respect for the team," said RockYou's head honcho, Josh Grant when speaking to Inside Social Games (via Polygon). "The focus of our business has changed; our core capabilities are in monetisation and distribution, and we reorganised last year to focus on our media business and third party publishing."

We'll keep an ear out for where the 3 Blokes team wind up in the next few weeks, but at least it's not a full-blown disaster for yet another talented group of Aussie devs.
