Multiplayer producer Aleksander Grøndal briefly discusses the same.
Even though you’ll be able to do just fine on consoles, there is the hardcore first person shooter faithful who prefers playing with a mouse and keyboard combination. And it’s not a bad thing – really, we doubt you’d be able to play games like DICE’s upcoming Battlefield 4 without a decent rig. With that in mind, will the upcoming sequel support keyboard and mouse support?
DICE is at least considering it. When asked by AusGamers about the PS3 having sufficient support for both, when developers choose to implement, and whether DICE would implement the same for the PlayStation 4, multiplayer producer Aleksander Grøndal responded that, “We have mouse and keyboard support for the PC obviously, but I can’t speak now specifically for next gen consoles. But if it makes sense in the Battlefield universe, for a Battlefield game, we’ll consider it.”
Battlefield 4 is set to release for Xbox 360, PC and PS3 on October 29th in North America. It will also release later for the Xbox One and PS4.
