Electronic Arts announced today that it has officially completed the acquisition of Battlefield series developer Digital Illusions CE (DICE) after a long courtship.
The agreement will have the Stockholm, Sweden-based DICE become a fully integrated EA Studio. According to a statement from EA, the studio will be "dedicated to growing the Battlefield franchise and developing new products for the PC, next generation consoles and other new platforms."
DICE is currently working on the eagerly anticipated Battlefield 2142 (pictured), which is set to release later this month for PC.
