Star Wars Focused DICE Studio Coming

GamesIndustry International has details on EA's new DICE studio in Los Angeles that will be focuses on creating games to capitalize on EA's new exclusive Star Wars games deal. They have liberated this information from the tyranny of the WSJ.com paywall, where they say the new studio will have a headcount of 60 by the end of this year. Apparently part of the appeal of that area is to be able to poach talent from Southern California studios like Treyarch and Infinity Ward: "There is an extreme talent pool over that we want a part of," says DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson. "It's no secret that our main competitor is there."

So instead of letting the ACTUAL DICE make a Battlefront game.... They rename the shitty studio that made Medal of Honor to DICE LA and hand THEM the Star Wars franchise?

They've already blown it and they haven't even started making a game yet.

"Welp, MOH was such a financial disaster and a failure at retail that we had to cancel the MOH series entirely... We should just let them make a Star Wars game" Brilliant!

It is brilliant. It's the same target audience. EA will earn a Billion dollars in the next 2 quarters. Done. moving right along. Fix Simcity, kthx.
