It appears that EA is bringing the team from Danger Close to help form a new studio in Los Angeles. Danger Close, originally called Dreamworks Interactive, was purchased by EA back in 2000.
The studio’s most notable work as of late has been the two most recent Medal of Honor titles. Now, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the studio is being integrated into EA’s new studio, DICE LA. In addition to many of the core staff from Danger Close, there will also be personnel from other EA global studios. The new studio also plans on hiring another 60 staff members before the year’s end.
The most interesting aspect to this story is that EA will be handing over its newly-acquired Star Wars license to DICE LA. They will be working on a Star Wars game, and while I’m sure many are hoping for another entry in the Battlefront series, it is far too early to confirm if this game will be part of an existing franchise or a new game in its own right.
What do you hope will come out of DICE LA? Let us know in the comments
