Dice is easily the most recognizable support team at EA. After all, they do Battlefield and the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront. That being said, EA has also told them what to make. But, in an interview with IGN, EA Vice President Patrick Soderlund states that could change, and it would be that Dice would start making and leading their own gaming titles:

“When you start something new, sometimes it’s actually good for them to test the waters, try a couple of explanation packs,” Soderlund told IGN. “You’ve got to have a good idea for a great game before you can make a game, and that takes time.”

“They’ve really not only created good stuff, they have taken over Battlefield 4…and done a great job with BF4 since the launch of it. They’ve built great expansion packs, but more importantly they’ve created an identity for us in LA.”

EA CEO Andrew Wilson added, “I have no doubt that DICE LA will be building their game at some [point], because it’s a really, really passionate group of people.”

Soderlund notes that Dice is in a really good place, so it’s only natural that they reward that with giving them the freedom to make new titles, ‘Now it’s time for you guys to do something else.’ I think you’ll see more from them in the future.”
