New studio manager for DICE LA talks about Battlefield 4 and the new development team


As previously reported, DICE has opened a new studio in Los Angeles. Initially it was believed that the new studio would start working on Star Wars, but it was later confirmed that DICE LA is currently working exclusively on Battlefield 4, side by side with the guys at HQ in Stockholm.

A new video interview with DICE LA studio manager reveals their plans for the new studio and how it will affect Battlefield 4. He says that the new studio is an “extension of the studio in Stockholm”, and will focus on the same “core values”.



DICE LA is currently hiring developers to expand their staff. He also talks about the new DICE Star Wars game that will eventually go into development when Battlefield 4 is completed.

    Probably after two years just like bf3 and it still isn’t completed, There are still unbalanced weapons and there are still some annoying glitches. But hey always be positive so bf4 will have no glitches and have all balanced weapons on the release. Ooohhh no I believe in fantasy’s.

      There has never been a game release without no problems or glitches. Every game will have them. And there is no such game with “all balanced weapons” so quit complaining

    I hope that they won’t develop on their own Battlefield games after BF4, so that there will be something between DICE and DICE LA like there is between Treyarch and Infinity Ward with CoD. I really hope that there won’t be a new Battlefield every year…

    As you may or may not know, within the last week EA has announced that a new DICE studio has been formed; and that is DICE Los Angeles. You may be thinking “Oh cool a new DICE studio?! That means more content and what not” I thought the same thing until I read deeper about this studio, Its Danger Close! Yup the studio that did 2010′s mediocre Medal of Honor campaign and 2012′s Medal of Honor Warfighter in its entirety (both campaingn and MP) (2010′s MoH MP was developed by DICE Sweden). This is marketing at it’s finest. Take developer that has lost a ton of repuation (because of Warfighter) and rename it after one of the most successful studios under your umbrella. Now people see DICE: LA and they associate it DICE, and not Danger Close. Just thought I would share with you guys. I am personally not a fan of Danger Close’s work. According to EA, DICE: LA is “an extension of DICE Sweden”, and that it is “100% focused on Battlefield 4″. This scares me a bit as I do not trust Danger Close with one of my favorite IP’s.

      I too read that article, as far as I remember that’s not true. There are only a select few people left over from danger close. And seeing as moh is not in the rotation anymore I guarantee you they are 100% focused on nothing other then bf4 which is their bread and butter and one of the most successful names in games. Also dice will be taking over star wars so I’m sure after bf4 that’s what will be next.
