If you were somehow still holding out hope that the long delayed Battlefield 1943 for the PC would ever become more than a promise, give up now. Developer DICE has finally officially canceled that game (and another Battlefield project).
DICE GM Karl Magnus Troedsson writes on the Battlefield Blog today that the World War II online shooter Battlefield 1943 is kaput. So is the Onslaught expansion for Battlefield: Bad Company 2. “Our talented teams will focus on delivering the greatest possible gaming experience in our next behemoth release,” Troedsson writes, referring to Battlefield 3. “We’re confident this will lead to an even better experience in Battlefield 3, not only on PC, but on all platforms.”
Troedsson calls the PC cancellation of those products a “hard decision”, but promises to “continue supporting Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and previous games”.
