DICE LA is the studio's LA branch that helps out with developing Battlefield titles, but it looks like DICE LA might be branching out on its own, and making new games.
According to EA Studios boss Patrick Soderlund, it's "highly likely" that we'll see DICE LA being the lead developer on its own projects soon. What projects would they be? Well, that's the exciting part. DICE LA opened up in 2013 where it worked on many Frostbite 3.0-powered games, including Battlefield 4.
DICE LA is run by core DICE veterans, with a chunk of staff from Danger Close, the studio that worked on Medal of Honor: Warfighter, working at the studio.
