Another day, another game designer jumping to a new studio. This time it is the lead designer of Battlefield 3 moving to a new location, as David Goldfarb has left his position at EA DICE to join Starbreeze Studios in its new Stockholm, Sweden, location. At Starbreeze, Goldfarb will work with creative director Ulf Andersson on a sequel to Payday: The Heist and an unannounced project. Starbreeze acquired Overkill Software in June, which brought Andersson, his team, and Payday under its roof. Goldfarb decided to leave DICE because he felt exhausted working on so many big projects, which he said was four games in five years. Working at Starbreeze will allow Goldfarb to design a title he is personally interested in; something he said "apparently is [a] crime" at other locations. Hopefully Goldfarb will enjoy working with Andersson and the new team, and I am sure many people are eager to see Payday 2 and the other project.
