Early last year, EA announced that Respawn Entertainment boss Vince Zampella was tasked to lead DICE LA, and that the studio was working on an unannounced game. It seems the guesses on what the studio is working on can be laid to rest, as it’s now been confirmed that it is indeed a Battlefield game!
Over on Twitter, Senior Design Director at DICE LA Justin Wiebe made people guess what EA franchise he was working on:
Given how Zampella teased that the studio is working on a shooter, this really shouldn’t be that surprising. Of course, the big question here is: Is DICE LA working on DICE Sweden’s still-untitled Battlefield game that’s confirmed to be out this year? Or is this a separate Battlefield title completely? We’ve reached out to EA for further clarification and will update the post if we hear anything back.
DICE LA was formed in May 2013, and consisted of devs from EA’s Danger Close Games. The studio (DICE LA) was originally seen a support studio for DICE Sweden, with the studio working on DLC and post-launch support for mainline Battlefield titles like Battlefield 4, Battlefield 1 and so on.
Could the rumor that DICE LA was working on Bad Company 3 be an actual thing? We certainly hope so.

Most probably working on the previous gen version of next-BF.
And DiCE Stockholm is working on its current-gen variant.
Wouldnt it be the other way around then?
Dice Sweden is the main studio. So of course they take precedence.
Could be but I hope not. Perhaps they will alternate with DICE Sweden to combat COD? Didn’t EA wanted to do that before with MoH and then Visceral with Hardline but failed? Zampella at the helm, this could be something special.
Hopefully its not on that Frostbite garbage but of course it is.
Frostbite is fine, its how you use it… (See BF1 for example)
Exactly. BC2, BF3, BF4 were all on Frostbite. DICE themselves made it so they know how to use it well.
