Battlefield developer DICE is expanding into new digs, with parent company EA opening a studio in Los Angeles. The announcement comes soon after the revelation that EA – and specifically DICE – would be working on games based in the Star Wars universe, so fans are wildly surmising about what might be in store from the new DICE Los Angeles studio.
The geographic jump makes sense. While DICE has traditionally been based in Sweden, its competition – Call of Duty makers Treyarch and Infinity Ward – have been in California. Moving closer means being able to access the same “extreme talent pool” that the others can hire from.
People stood up and cheered, when I announced that we were working on Star Wars.
More is expected to be revealed at E3 next month.
