Battlefield 2042 co-developer DICE LA is now Ripple Effect, and it’s making something new

DICE LA, the studio that’s making a mystery mode for Battlefield 2042, is now called Ripple Effect Studios. Along with collaborating with DICE on Battlefield, Ripple Effect is hiring for its own unannounced project.

The new name makes a lot of sense, not in the way it’s officially meant (“even the smallest idea can change the world”), but because Ripple Effect as a studio has had a wave-like character, shapeshifting, dividing, and once temporarily disappearing under the surface before reappearing.
