Dead Space dev drops 'EA' name

EA Redwood Shores becomes Visceral Games

EA's longest running studio, EA Redwood Shores, has had its name changed to Visceral Games, the publishing giant has confirmed.

The Dead Space and Dante's Inferno developer said that the name change was part of claiming its "new identity".


"In the last two years, the studio has adopted a new identity as we've committed ourselves to a new set of development principles and game design values," GM Glen Schofield said.

"We make intense, top quality games that push the boundaries of action entertainment. The name change represents who we are and what we believe games should be. Dead Space, Dead Space: Extraction, Dante's Inferno and other concepts in the pipeline illustrate where the studio's expertise and passion lay.

"Primal action is the beating heart of the studio and now our new name reflects that," he added,

The studio's confirmed that it's currently working on two unannounced projects.
