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 I guess the plan is to use Frostbite for all the games.. so I guess no 1313 then? :/

Pretty sure I read that it was in development hell, they completely started over once. Most likely it would have ended up like another Aliens Colonial Marines and look nothing like the target render gameplay they showed off.

Star Wars Battlefield makes the most logical sense, lets face it they've wanted to do this ever since BF2142. I just don't know if I like the idea of force powers and lightsabers in Battlefield flavored game. This also speaks volumes to the future of the Star Wars franchise, how are they going to replace the awesomeness of Stormtroopers and the Empire for the 'bad guys'?

It'll be Rebel forces against Russian Spetsnaz, I'm calling it now.
