Speaking at GDC Europe, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson stated that “Battlefield 4 will be set in modern times.”
But that wasn’t the only question on people’s lips. What about the fabled Bad Company franchise, providing a nice alternative to the series’ mainstay.
Troedsson commented on Bad Company’s present AWOL status, “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”.
“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.”
“That doesn’t mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future.”
So never fret Bad Company fans. The future is still bright.
