After releasing a number of titles in the 90s under the DreamWorks Interactive label, the studio's biggest hit came in 1999 with the release of the original Medal of Honor video game for the PlayStation console. A year later, the studio was acquired from DreamWorks (and Microsoft, which had part ownership of the company) by Electronic Arts, and in 2003 merged with Westwood Studios (the original creators of the Command & Conquer series) and EA Pacific (originally Westwood Pacific) to form a new studio named EA Los Angeles.
In 2010, it was revealed that EA Los Angeles would be re-branded as Danger Close Games. The studio's direction was to focus exclusively on developing upcoming Medal of Honor games, which for the first time were to abandon their traditional World War II setting. Their first project was the single-player component of Medal of Honor, which was released on October 12, 2010 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Two years later, on October 23, 2012, they released that game's follow-up, Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
In January 2013, EA announced that the Medal of Honor series was taken 'out of rotation' and put on hold due to the poor reception of Warfighter. Additionally, many employees were laid off and the studio itself was shut down. In June 2013, EA confirmed that Danger Close Games is no more.  DICE, creator of the successful Battlefield franchise, moved employees to the LA location and now has an LA presence called DICE LA.
