DICE devs become latest recruits for growing Sweden studio

A trio of developers at Stockholm studio EA DICE have quit to join nearby outfit Ngmoco Sweden.

Wille Wintertidh, Malte Hildingsson and Torbjorn Lædre, the latter two having worked on Battlefield 3, were named as new hires by Ngmoco Sweden manager Ben Cousins (pictured).

Cousins himself left EA in March last year, after a four-year executive spell at the publisher. Much of his new studio’s work will be focused on building content for the social gaming platform Mobage.

Mobage is owned by Japan-based firm Dena, which in October 2010 acquired Ngmoco for $400 million.

Ngmoco Sweden has steadily expanded its staff numbers in recent months. Last year it hired a number of staff from European development group Crytek.
