DICE Claims EA Gets “Too Much Crap for Not Being Innovative”

September 10, 2012 Written by Alex Osborn

Battlefield developer DICE has spoken out in defense of EA, saying that the publisher is more innovative than gamers give them credit for.

In an interview with Gamasutra, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson expressed his displeasure in all of the negativity that has been thrown EA’s way for allegedly not providing gamers with fresh content.

EA is actually very prone to try out new things. And I have to say that sometimes I think we get too much crap for not being innovative. We do release new IPs, and we do take care of IPs that have been out there. And perhaps not so successful, but we try to get new things out there as well.

Now, that might sound strange coming from me, working on Battlefield. We’ve been around for 10 years, and we just keep doing more of the same, but being innovative in that space.

EA labels boss Frank Gibeau recently shared the company’s plans to launch new IPs at the start of the next generation, so hopefully we’ll have new quality content from EA in the near future.
