While the guys at DICE celebrate 10 years of the Battlefield franchise, they also look to the future, with Battlefield 4 on the horizon next year. DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson has announced at the GDC Europe event, that Battlefield 4 will be set in modern times, so expect all the weapons and tech from this generation. So why Battlefield 4 and not Battlefield: Bad Company 3?
“There’s a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on. Everything from fans’ feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves. It’s not just one single thing,” said Troedsson. “And, yes, I know Battlefield 4 is probably the most creative name we ever could come up with. I can’t comment any more on that games because it’s all secret.”
He continued, “We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful.”
It’s good to see the series not to go the same avenue of its biggest rival Call of Duty and jump into the futuristic setting the shooter took this year. What the story and gameplay will consist of is anybody’s guess, we will have to wait and see what they throw out.
