Today Electronic Arts (do they even use that name anymore?) acquired renowned game developer Digital Illusions CE in a, as the latter one states, merger between the two companies. DICE is best known for its Battlefield series. And so EA continues to swallow up their stable of developers tied to the behemoth.
What does this concern us you might ask? Well EA is the owner and publisher of all things coming out of their Maxis studio. Whether this will shift the focus of EA from our game genre remains to be seen. But I admit it is far-fetched. Nevertheless interesting news.
