Game publisher Electronic Arts recently announced that game studio DICE LA has rebranded itself with a new name, Ripple Effect Studios.
Ripple Effect Studios is currently working with DCE to develop the upcoming video game Battlefield 2042. A new preview is also scheduled for upcoming EA Play Live on July 22.
“At Ripple Effect Studios, innovation and quality are paramount in every project, as even the smallest idea can change the world. This is the defining feature behind the studio’s new name,” said Christian Grass, GM of Ripple Effect Studios. “We are so proud of our work as DICE LA and the DICE team will forever be part of our DNA, but over the past eight years we have developed our own culture and way of doing things. We look forward to looking to the future, expanding the team and establishing our own identity.”
Vince Zampella, founder of Respawn Entertainment and general manager of the group, took on an extensive leadership role in January 2020, including overseeing Ripple Effect Studios. Together, Vince and Christian are focused on bringing in additional leading artists, designers and engineers as the team continues their groundbreaking work on Battlefield 2042 and a new project in the works.
“The studio has a great track record and will grow into a new stronghold of high-quality games,” said Vince Zampella, founder of Respawn Entertainment. “With a great new campus coming to Los Angeles and remote positions available, now is a great time to consider joining us.”
