The Pokemon Team Cherry (PMC) has been replaced by Microsoft as the second-largest team in the gaming company’s ranks, after Microsoft’s own Microsoft Studios.
According to sources, PMC, which is based in Los Angeles, has been disbanded after the Microsoft Studios acquisition.
The team will be renamed as “Microsoft’s Entertainment Division,” sources told Engadgets.
The news of PMC’s departure comes less than two months after the Pokemon team was acquired by Microsoft.
In August, Microsoft announced the acquisition of the Pokemon company, which had been in existence since 2005.
In January, Microsoft released its first game for the Xbox 360, Pokken Tournament, which was based on the Pokemon series of games.
Microsoft had previously announced plans to buy the Pokemon franchise, which it acquired in 2017 for $2.2 billion.
