Seems that everyone wants to get a job at DICE as today both Yuriy O’Donnel and Sebastien Lagarde announced that they will be joining DICE tomorrow. Lagarde was previously working at DONTNOD and was responsible for some lighting techniques that made Remember Me stand out from the crowd. Lagarde will be working as a Senior rendering programmer at DICE now.
O’Donnel, on the other hand, was previously working at Creative Assembly. SEGA has released – a couple of days ago – Total War: Rome II, a strategy title that is plagued by a lot of issues. We currently don’t know whether O’Donnel left CA or was fired (typical thing that happens after the release of a title). Creative Assembly promised to fix Total War: Rome 2, so it will be interesting to see whether more members will be leaving it in the next couple of days.
DICE is currently working on a remake of Mirror’s Edge, a new Battlefront title and Battlefield 4. All of these titles will be powered by Frostbite 3, DICE’s proprietary engine.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
