Battlefield: Bad Company 3 Will Happen, Says DICE
DICE Creative Director Lars Gustavsson recently spoke with Polygon at a press event regarding a third title in the much-loved Battlefield: Bad Company series. Gustavsson said:
My feeling is that I would love to do it. For me, when we started the company with 1942, it was really a work of passion.
And then we worked our way through the era of different wars, and I loved them all, like my little babies. When it came to Bad Company, it was creative freedom; don’t take yourself too seriously.
So I love it. I want to see it again. Whether it can happen [right] now with the newly announced Mirrors Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront… but we’ll see.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the most recent in the series, was released in 2010 for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The series follows Private Preston Marlow, and featured a cast of characters that became loved by fans of the series, most notably Gordon Haggard Jr., and squad leader Sergeant Samuel D. Redford.
At E3, EA revealed a multitude of new games including Mirror’s Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront. DICE is currently working on Battlefield 4 and Star Wars: Battlefront so their plates are more than a little full at the moment.
EA has stated that Bad Company 3 is not in active development at this time. Gustavsson continued:
But trust me, the Bad Company [team] isn’t forgotten, they are just on a very long vacation. They are out there, they’re coming back.
