EA Gothenburg becomes Ghost

EA’s latest studio, EA Gothenburg, has been renamed Ghost.

Located on the west coast of Sweeden in the country’s second largest city, Gothenburg, Ghost has set out to create AAA games development.

“Founded on the core principles of Excellence, Fun and Respect, Ghost is working to create a world-class team of developers, an exceptional working environment and build the next big thing in AAA gaming,” reads the press release.

“Ghost is a unique proposition in the AAA development space; all the agility and creativity of a ‘start-up’, while working with industry giants like Criterion and DICE guarantee we have the tools and support to execute our creative and technical visions.”

It already seems that Ghost are hard at work on a new entry into the Need for Speed franchise as, under the moniker of EA Gothenburg, it was revealed that they would take charge for one entry into the series.

That seems to still ring true as one of the many job openings they have calls for a Vehicle Artist.

“As a Senior Vehicle Artist you will help define and document in-game vehicle specifications, prototype new features and implement and tweak vehicle assets under direction from the Vehicle Producer,” reads the post. “This is a key role in the making of our game. As the vehicle is almost always located in the center of player’s view, it’s imperative that the vehicle looks sensational at all times.”
