Last year Electronic Arts launched a new Swedish game studio called EA Gothenburg. It has been eight years since Dice moved from Gothenburg to Stockholm.
Dice have now decided to create a new studio, Ghost in the center of Gothenburg. Here development of new games for the Need for Speed series will take place. The goal is to be as reputable as Dice.
The responsibility for the studio was fell to Marcus Nilsson, who had been working for Dice since 2002 and been a part of Dice’s former manager and the recent EA- “hot shot” Patrick Söderlund’s immediate workgroup.
The choice was not a coincidence. Nilsson himself worked at the former Dice Gothenburg office before it moved to Stockholm eight years ago. He also led the development of Need for Speed shift and it’s a Need for Speed game that the new studio will develop.
