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.

Allsystemgamer1980d ago

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.

dazzrazz1980d ago

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...

TedCruzsTaint1980d ago

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.
