AIAS has announced plans for a keynote panel for DICE next month, which will include the most recent four entrants into its Hall of Fame.

This year’s entrants, BioWare co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, will be joined by Blizzard president and 2008 entry Mike Morhaime; 2009 entry and Zynga consultant Bruce Shelley; and Cerny Games’ Mark Cerny, who entered the Hall of Fame in 2010.

The event will be moderated by NYT journalist Seth Schiesel.

“We’re looking forward to putting these five videogame legends on stage to open the tenth iteration of the DICE Summit,” said AIAS president, Martin Rae.

“It’s the first time the Academy has endeavoured to create a presentation of this kind.”

DICE takes place from February 9-10 in Las Vegas.

Thanks, GI.
