DICE to open new L.A. studio

Written by David Stellmack

First satellite studio outside of Stockholm

DICE is opening a satellite studio in Los Angeles in conjunction with EA. This will be a first for the Stockholm-based developer of the Battlefield series. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that the studio will be located in L.A. instead of the DICE home base in Stockholm, Sweden.

What is perhaps the most interesting thing about this decision is that DICE will be able to tap into the very rich talent pool in the backyard of developers such as Infinity Ward and Treyarch, which are both located in Southern California.

With the opening of DICE LA, this adds to the man power that the studio has, and which it will need if the rumors about the Star Wars title that the studio is developing is indeed a new Star Wars Battlefront game. The plan is to grow DICE LA to about 60 employees before the end of the year.

What no one seems to know is if the decision to open DICE LA is something that will affect Danger Close, which were the developers of the Medal of Honor reboot. EA still has not confirmed the status of the studio, but we do know that at least some of the developers at Danger Close are now at DICE LA.
