New DICE LA studio is focusing on Battlefield 4
EA recently opened DICE LA, which was actually a renaming of the Danger Close studio — the guys who did Medal Of Honor Warfighter. We previously thought that the new DICE LA studio will be working on a DICE Star Wars game, but EA has other plans.
EA has now issued a stetement clarifying the new studio’s role. Thy said that DICE LA is “an extension of DICE Sweden”, and that it is “100% focused on Battlefield 4”. The two studios will work together on games, EA said, so when ever a Star Wars game goes into development, both DICE Sweden and DICE LA will work on it.
DICE LA was formerly Danger Close, which made the rather disappointing Medal of Honor Warfighter. Since then, EA has put that franchise on hiatus.
It’s unknown what DICE LA is contributing to Battlefield 4. The game is being built with the new Frostbite 3 game engine, and is scheduled for release this Fall.
