Vince Zampella, boss of Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order developer Respawn Entertainment, has taken on an expanded role as “head coach” of DICE LA.
If you’ve not heard of DICE LA before, well, we’re not surprised. The Los Angeles-based outfit has existed for the last six years as a support studio working behind the scenes on games from Battlefield developer DICE and other EA studios. It has not yet released a game of its own.
Before that? DICE LA formed from the ashes of Danger Close Games, formerly EA Los Angeles. It was EA’s main Medal of Honor studio, until interest in that franchise waned.
