There Might Just Be More Battlefield: Bad Company On The Way

Those guys at DICE, man, they are busy. They've got betas to test and bugs to squash as Battlefield 3 — undoubtedly one of the biggest games of the year—gears up for release. That's a lot of work. So, could they possibly be thinking about the story-driven Bad Company branch of their FPS franchise?

Turns out the answer is maybe. Game Informer's got producer Patrick Liu on the record as saying the following:

"We haven't killed Bad Company!" he said. "But we can only make so many games. Be patient... there might be something else coming up...

"We always have a couple of projects going on — some of them die, but some are more fruitful. We don't have any plans to make Battlefield an annual title — we want to make it ourselves we don't want anyone else doing it! And no studio can make an annual franchise by themselves — well, the sports titles can but they're a very different breed."

Of course, that something else could be a much-hoped-for Mirror's Edge 2 but, given the way that Bad Company 2 performed, it's entirely likely that we'll be seeing the roguish soldiers of B Company before parkour-tastic heroine Faith makes her return.

    Bring back the fun from B:BC1

      oh hell yea, B:BC 2 sucked, BC 1 was so much fun, open ended gameplay, was awsome

      +1 I loved the sandbox style gameplay

    Um there already is more Bad Company...they've called it Battlefield 3 but considering the amount of people that have flocked back to Battlefield 2, it's a safe bet that BF3 is just Bad Company with jets and it's dumbed down console shooter methodology.

    ... just release and support BF3, jesus.

    Don't become the shit studio you once were back in 2000, basically launching an update and calling it a "new game" EA has really redeemed itself, now don't fall back into that bad pattern.

    sweet, always love more games in the pronefield series.

    Bad Company now has enough cred to run on it's own name. With Battlefield 3 soon upon us, I think if DICE wish to make more BAD COMPANY games, they should do so without the "Battlefield" parent name.


    I also hope they'll reform the style back to the open-endedness of BC1. Especially the levels after the heli crash. They were intense!

    Give me BC1's singleplayer with BC2's Mutiplayer & I'll be a happy man!

    Also plenty of DLC for BF3!
