“I think it’s something that people are ready to get into again,” claimed DICE producer Patrick Liu.
“We see that there’s a huge fan following, it’s almost like a cult! And we know what strengths we had, and what weaknesses we had in that game. If we were to release a new game, we’d know what to improve and how to reach a broader audience. So I definitely think there’s a market there.”
There’s no clear indication that the game is even in development, or pre-production for that matter, but it’s encouraging to hear DICE talk about the original so fondly. Despite the game’s issues, it was one of the most forward looking games of this generation. Personally, I’d love to see a sequel.
