Battlefield: Hardline Will Work at Launch, Development Began One Year Before BF4
But no, seriously, it’ll work according to creative director Ian Milham.
Despite all the great new features that Visceral Games has showed off in Battlefield: Hardline, there will always be that one nagging question in our heads, especially after the debacle that was Battlefield 4’s launch. Will the game work? Will it be free from bugs or fall into a pit of despair like BF4? Creative director Ian Milham spoke to GameRevolution about the same and answered things quite nicely.
“What you’re basically asking is, ‘Is your game going to work?’ and the answer is yes, it’s gonna work.
“We actually started on this more than a year before Battlefield 4 came out. We’ve been working with the DICE guys for a long time; some of our engineering work is actually in Battlefield 4 and things they’ve been doing since then. It’s in pretty great shape now and all that work is gonna come into what we’re doing.
“We already had one very successful beta, we’re going to have another beta on every platform we ship on. We take shipping a working game pretty seriously. So, yes, the game will work,” he emphasised.
Battlefield: Hardline will be out on March 31st 2015 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC.
