Battlefield 4 Will Take Place in the Modern Day
During GDC Europe Karl Magnus Troedsson, DICE general manager, revealed that Battlefield 4 will be set in modern times. He also gave the reasoning for the team moving on so quickly with the core Battlefield franchise, instead of returning to Bad Company.
“There’s a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on,” Troedsson said. “Everything from fans’ feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves. It’s not just one single thing. And, yes, I know Battlefield 4 is probably the most creative name we ever could come up with. I can’t comment any more on that games because it’s all secret.”
“We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is,” he added. “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.”
On the topic of the Bad Company franchise Troedsson said, “That doesn’t mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future.”
