In an apparent concession to the strength of EA Sports? muscle, Microsoft has permanently benched much of its internal sports-game studio. In news first released to the local Seattle press, Microsoft has confirmed that 76 employees previously attached to the NFL Fever, NHL Rivals, and Inside Drive teams are to be terminated.

Today's move has no impact on Microsoft Game Studio's Salt Lake City location, the studio behind the Amped and Links franchises. Those two series, along with Top Spin, were not included in the March development freeze.
