Battlefield 4 will keep the modern setting

4

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.

Thoughts, single-players? Is the modern warfare setting getting tired, or is there still room for a few more FPS titles based around current conflicts? Make sure to follow OnlySP for more modern news.

  1. If Battlefield can make a worthwhile storyline, then the modern setting has plenty of to promise. Most first person shooters completely suck with story. 5 hour campaign, wtf?

  3. I am glad they are sticking to a current setting. The recent past stuff has been done and the near future is… just weird. (Drone dogs?) Plus, if they stick with current generation weaponry, my team can continue to replicate our game loads with our Airsoft loads.
