The updated name represents the idea that ”The smallest idea can change the world”. This means how small ideas can be turned into innovation and changes in how the industry approaches the development of games and studio environments or life.

Not only this, but now Ripple Effect Studios is also creating its own new projects.

According to a blog post published by Electronic Arts, the company’s ultimate ambition is to become a strong studio that excels at every single thing. They want to improve the entire process of making games.

The company wants to reach a high level of quality in every single thing they do, no matter how big or small. Ripple Effect Studios wants to establish its own identity and expand the team.

Christian Grass said, ”We are so proud of our work as DICE LA and the DICE team will forever be a part of our DNA, but over the past eight years, we have developed our own culture.”

DICE LA was founded back in 2013, most likely as a support studio and has quite a history. It was first started with DreamWork Interactives in 2000, to later be named EA Los Angeles. In 2010 it was renamed again to Danger Close Games.

Finally, it was shut down in 2013 because of the poor reception of the Medal of Honor Warfighter. The remaining staff then moved to DICE LA.

All the work of Battlefield 2042 is almost completed, and the studio has started working on an unannounced project. It is possible that the game could be released very soon. However, it is quite hard to guess how far the development work might be.

It could be in its initial stage or maybe near to completion. Ripple Effect Studios’ contribution in battlefield 2042 is a ”Player-inspired experience”, which is quite a mystery right now.

For more leads on Battlefield 2042, fans may have to wait for EA Play Live on 22 July 2021.
