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."

Being a fan of Republic Commando, I'm interested to see if this is the direction DICE will take since fps/action is their bread and butter.

I felt a sudden disturbance in the Force. As if a million pieces of the game cried out in terror, and were suddenly turned into DLC.


Anyway, a good Star Wars FPS would be cool. We haven't had one in for-fucking-ever. Just please don't make it Call of Star Wars bullshit, but go back to the old-school formula of Dark Forces / Jedi Knight.

Imagine a Jedi Knight game in a modern engine? I think I just peed a little.

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?
Yikes, is this essentially true?

Bruuuutttallll.

Though, if you look at it this way, MOH's quality barely stood a chance since it was made out to be a stripped-down-from-BF COD clone right out of the gate.
The developer never really had the opportunity to spread it's wings.

Maybe this will be their chance....

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!

What makes a studio a "DICE" studio? DICE is in Sweden. This seems like it's just a branded EA studio, to ride on the coattails of DICE's good name.

It worked so well for them with Bioware! Oh wa...

Well at least now we know that Bioware wont be doing any new Star Wars games! Hooraay!

Yeah... they'd have you traversing the same backgrounds, respawn enemies, and have a shitty ending. I love the new Bioware!!!

Not that Battlefield Star Wars has my interest, either.

Actually a Battlefront 3 game sounds kind of cool in theory at least, right? But then I remember Origin, and cheaters, and DLCs, and cheaters (again) and argh....
