Expanding in Southern California, right near to Infinity Ward and Treyarch.
i knew they were gonna merge with dice but i didnt know when
LOL. Shame on you EA. Trying to fool gamers by saying that the next Star Wars is made by DICE... trying to get more sales. I can see the slogan... "Star Wars, by the makers of Battlefield Franchise"
It's the normal MO for most big publishers like Ubisoft. Kaz (Sony) most recently trimmed the fat and closed several studios but retained as many talented people he could and formed 2nd teams at their more successful ones. Of course it's just re-branding for the sake of extra revenue. I guarantee you Sega does this in wake of Gear Box's Aliens disaster and pushes Creative Assembly's name all over the new Aliens game in PR releases; even though it's NOT made by the famous RTS dev but the chaps that gave us Viking.
I knew this was coming, but Danger Close is a scary place. Hopefully some better management. Game should turn out better than Medal of Honor anyway.
the Thing is Danger Close Never done game that is very good and last time they produce a decent game is MOH frontline which is like 10 years ago?
This is better than if the game was actually made by DICE (in Sweden) to be honest. Danger close used to be known as EA Los Angeles, and when Pandemic studios shut down, a lot of the employees were hired by EA LA. So in other words, "DICE LA" has original SWBF developers in it's studio. So heres to hoping that they are actually making SWBF..
Don't be surprised to see some actual dice developers working on star wars now that the 2 branches have combined danger close can use the talent from dice
i always though Danger Close was like a sister company to DICE. now they can get more resources i guess.
Hopefully it allows them to create better games :/
They are A New Hope. And yes, i'm aware that was terrible, but you know what, I don't care. Yay, one person disagreed so they like my awful attempt at a pun.
NO! I hoped DICE in Sweden would take the reigns for the Battlefront/First Assault series.
Ok,now how about patching warfighter.The game is good it just needsva few patches here and there.To make it play smooth.
What for ? Nobody plays this shit anymore, besides that EA announced in February that due to extremely shitty scores and sales Danger Close is no more and they are abandoning the title...
It's rather easy to find a game both on console and PC. Owned on 360 and played until I went PC. Now I play on PC. And, read the title, they are just re-branded. Check their track record through the years and name shifts . . . they are a very talented team who worked on a lot of great games.
A "Star Wars" game made by EA, I'll pass on that one.
GOOD ;) EA has been making some pretty good moves lately ;)
And have been named the worst company twice. Lol
Pigpen that's right now keep on thinking what people tell you too, like a good little piggy...
Sooo...Medal of Honor:TIE-fighter?
Good lord I'm not serious people.
Lol what happened to people's humour?
They will most likely make an FPS (Battlefront, Jedi Knight, Republic Commando) as that was all Danger Close made so it could be decent or awful. Hopefully with DICE backing them up it will be decent with solid multiplayer.
I knew it would be with Danger Close to get turned into DICE LA.
"Battlefront as a title is too similar to Battlefield and EA won’t want to confuse people over two of its own releases. Battlefront by another name (Republic Commando, perhaps?) is still very feasible though." - are u fukcing kidding me...
yea but they're not gonna name the game just battlefront, it would probably something like Star wars: Battlefront 3. I mean how can you confuse that.
"Danger Close" was a better name, if you ask me.
Like fermcr said above, they're just trying to associate the studio with the real DICE so consumers who don't know the difference will assume Danger Close's games are from the same devs as their favorites (Battlefield), or of the same quality.
Don't care what you call any of the studios in your portfolio ,all I want is Star Wars 1313 to be released soon & follow up to republic Commando would be nice.
well 2142 is no longer a star wars boot leg. should be good if done right.
Im happy Dice is doing the Star Waes game and the FrostBite 3 engine will be stunning.
Hopefully if they make a Battlefront game it'll be third person with the option for first person, just like the original Battlefront titles. The one thing I don't want is a Star Wars skin over a Battlefield game.
Danger Close (and its numerous merges/name changes) have made a myriad of games although most were not fantastic. I enjoyed aome of their console rts games (Lotr more than C&C) and other than stale story/setting of recent MoH games I thought they were okay (whole terrorist/middle east is boring and overused at this point IMO so really need something special). Hopefully they can make a decent SW shooter or rts as it is a much better setting to work with.
BWUAHAHA this game is gonna suck and flop big time TURD in the making.
