DICE ‘ashamed’ of Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Posted By | On 30th, Sep. 2011

We really like Battlefield: Bad Company 2. In our review, we gave it a solid 9.5/10. It’s really surprising to see, then, that DICE’s executive producer Patrick Bach says he is ‘ashamed’ of the game and cannot even get himself to boot it up.

“I don’t know why, but I always feel ashamed about the games I’m involved in making,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “I can’t even bring myself to start up Battlefield Bad Company 2, our last game, because I feel so ashamed. I know it is a great product but still I only see the things we could have done better.”

He then went on to say that the studio is currently working on removing any unpolished elements in Battlefield 3 in time for its October end release.

“We are focusing on cutting the bad stuff rather than adding and changing things. Instead of adding ideas, we are removing problems, and that is what our testers are helping us with.

“We have deleted portions of maps, we have skipped passages in the single player campaign. Everything that doesn’t meet our standards we chop out. A lot of games fail at that, they seem to think more is better and often, that isn’t the case.

“Everyone in the team has been sucked into the idea that this will be the ultimate game. And when you feel that you have to ship a tiny detail which isn’t perfect you feel extremely disappointed. But to be honest, when you look at the game it is pretty cool. You just have to step away from it.”

We recently posted a hands-on preview for Battlefield 3’s multiplayer beta, and we thought that despite some issues, rough edges and bugs, it was still shaping up to be solid. Read the preview here.

Battlefield 3 releases in October end for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
