By now, you’ve probably heard the line “war never changes” or something of that ilk. Is it true, though? Does war cease to evolve throughout the ages? Well, it’s just been announced that Battlefield 4 will retain the series’ now standard modern setting, so take that as you will.
At GDC Europe today, DICE manager Karl Magnus Troedsson announced that the developer’s upcoming shooter, currently titled Battlefield 4, will continue to be set in modern times. He also stated that feedback and research will be taken into account during the project and that the title is merely a placeholder for now.
There’s a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on. 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. 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.
