Develop is reporting that Nokia has shut down its Vancouver-based game studio affecting some 100 jobs in the process.

Nokia's N-Gage Design Studio in Vancouver had developed a significant number of titles for the first and second generation N-Gage systems as well as for mobile phones. The group worked on franchises such as Call of Duty, Tiger Woods and Tony Hawk.

The Vancouver studio closed its doors on June 30th. Nokia announced back in March that it would be cutting 1,700 jobs across its global enterprise on top of the 600 layoffs announced back in November.
