More Battlefield talk coming from DICE and EA
For those of you who are waiting on some more post-release support for Battlefield 3, but was disappointed by the lack of an announcement at EA’s most recent press event, I have good news for you. Ian Tornay, a Community Manager for DICE, reassured fans that “We definitely have something coming – stay tuned.” Whether it’s some more map packs (likely), weapons (also likely), or some DLC campaign stuff (not a chance in hell) has yet to be determined.
Between Medal of Honor, the long-awaited Mass Effect 3, and several other big-name releases from the publisher, it’s certainly going to be a busy year for EA. But EA hasn’t forgotten Battlefield 3, or the Battlefield franchise in general. Specifically, Tornay mentioned the possibility of a Battlefield 2142 sequel, hinted at in the image to the left in one of BF3′s Back to Karkand maps. “There is a lot of enthusiasm inside DICE for 2143 – they love it as much as you guys do, too,” he said, “Is it more likely than anything else that’s been suggested? Not as far as I know. So, not a yes, not a no.” Either way, stay tuned for whatever EA and DICE have in store for this much-loved multiplayer shooter!
