Today, during the GDC Europe event, DICE general manager, Karl Magnus Troedsson revealed little, but precious, information regarding Battlefield 4 and Bad Company 3.
Starting with how they chose to continue this way, he said that “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.”
Then, he jokingly added “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.”
Closing, he said “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.”
And for the cherry on top of the pie, he added “That doesn’t mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future.”
Can we expect a Bad Company 3 game soon then, if at all? Considering that there was a good 6 years’ time between Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 3, it’s interesting they announced Battlefield 4 just a year after the third game’s release. Which begs for the question, will the next entry be Bad Company 3? We can only wait and see.
