EA's DICE acquisition complete

More Battlefields to come.

Electronic Arts has completed its acquisition of Stockholm-based development team Digital Illusions CE, a move it started officially in March of this year.

The Battlefield developer will now become a fully integrated EA studio, where it will work on developing further content for the popular military franchise, as well as creating new products for PC and next-generation consoles.

"EA is thrilled to officially welcome this team of incredibly talented people and a globally recognised franchises," said Paul Lee, president of EA Worldwide Studios.

"We're confident that our creative approach and business leadership principles are well matched to share future success," he added.

Electronic Arts had tried to acquire the developer back in 2004, but shareholders rejected the publishers' offer despite it being recommended by Digital Illusions board of directors. Both companies have since worked out differences in order to successfully merge.

Digital Illusions latest title, Battlefield 2142, is due for release in Europe on October 20th.
