Back in January 2020, EA announced that Respawn Entertainment founder, Vince Zampella, would be moving to DICE LA to oversee the studio. Now, the studio is rebranding, now known as Ripple Effect Studios and will begin working on its own non-Battlefield project.
DICE LA was previously one of several studios working on Battlefield, even now under Ripple Effect, the studio is still working on a post-launch game mode for Battlefield 2042, which is due out this year. Excitingly though, the studio is also working on a new project, likely to be a new IP, with Vince Zampella overseeing operations.
As part of the Ripple Effect Studios announcement, EA says: “Our ambition is to become a studio that excels at everything — not just making games but also the process of how we make them. We want to reach a super level of quality in everything we do, no matter how big or small. This philosophy applies to everything, from constantly refining our development process, to cultivating a positive company culture and growing a thriving community.”
As you would expect from a new studio, Ripple Effect is hiring in most departments from art to programming.
KitGuru Says: Vince Zampella did a great job growing Respawn Entertainment and establishing a new IP with Titanfall. Hopefully Ripple Effect’s future will be just as bright.
