Associate producer for the Battlefield franchise Gordon Van Dyke has left studio DICE to start work on a new project with Visceral Games.
In a series of April 1 twitter announcements reported by Blast Magazine, Van Dyke outlined his reasons for moving and his hopes for the future.
“I know, April Fools, but yes, I have left DICE. I’m still in EA though and moving back to the Bay Area to be closer to family for a few years,” he said.
On April 6, he added: “First day at Visceral went great, even though most of it was orientation. I think this project is going to impress and surprise gamers.”
Speaking to Joystiq, Van Dyke again confirmed that he is helping Visceral with a new project, and would reveal more about it at a later date.
