From Electronic Arts came the news about the recent opening of a new R&D departments in Los Angeles. It was confirmed that the department DICE LA will be responsible for creation of games from the famous Star Wars franchise. DICE LA has already gathered developers from Danger Close development house, which is responsible for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and Karl-Magnus Troedsson of DICE acknowledges that by year-end department in Los Angeles will have sixty employees.

For now, it is not clear whether DICE LA will start to work on a brand new Star Wars title, or perhaps prepare some new extension of previously published parts of the series.

Electronic Arts has recently signed an agreement with Disney which provided the perennial rights to create games related to the Star Wars franchise. Besides DICE LA, to help with the new Star Wars titles creators of Dead Space from Visceral Games, and of course, BioWare will also join the action.
