EA to open LA Dice studio

EA is to open a new LA studio which will house a new section of Battlefield developer DICE.

According to a report on the Wall Street Journal begins, "Electronic Arts, fresh off announcing it cut 10 percent of its workforce to trim costs, is investing in a new Los Angeles studio for its Stockholm-based DICE game developer with the goal of poaching talent from rivals like Activision Blizzard."

DICE's general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson also told the site, "There is an extreme talent pool over that we want a part of. It's no secret that our main competitor is there," not doubt referring to Activision.

EA has already revealed that DICE, Visceral Games and BioWare would be making Star Wars games, so it seems very possible that the first project for this new studio could very well be set in the world of Luke Skywalker.

What do you think?

Does that mean that Danger Close games (formerly EA LA) are going to be shutting down after the Medal of Honour fiasco and their less than stellar presence behind Army of Two? I genuinely fear for anyone that takes a job with these people. THey've just shut down a shed load of offices, now they are opening more? Sounds like cutting off the nose to spite the face to me.

Rebrand Danger Close to DICE LA, give them Star Wars to run with and when that fails cry and rebrand again
