Star Wars Battlefront


 

When Star Wars: Battlefront was revealed to the world during EA’s E3 press conference it was believed that the newly created DICE L.A. studio would be working on the game, turns out the core DICE team in Stockholm are in charge.

Patrick Söderlund, exec VP of the EA Games label confirmed to CVG in an E3 interview that the core DICE team, including Battlefield executive producer Patrick Bach and DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson, jumped at the chance to work on the franchise.

“It was almost not happening,” Söderlund told CVG. “It was just something as boring as resources and availability. The DICE guys Karl-Magnus [Troedsson] and Patrick [Bach] were talking and I told them we were in dialogues with Disney over this deal and they just looked at me and said, “why haven’t you spoken to us? What are you doing? We want to make Battlefront.”

“DICE is a very particular place and they are very proud of what they do and you don’t really tell them what to do. I didn’t anticipate them wanting to work on a license – they’ve always been new IP or their own IP. But they were just like, “we would kill to make this game” and the whole studio started talking about it like, “please give us this game”.”

He added that “people that have worked on Battlefield for many years” including “Patrick [Bach] himself” are working on the game. “These are experienced DICE people in Sweden building this game–it’s being built in Stockholm,” Söderlund concluded.
