They already did.. It's called BF2142 and BF1943 and BF Vietnam. Next story, nothing to see here, but I bet this is going to make its way that CoD focused site IGN just because its trying to be critical of DICE and the BF franchise.

Thats cool and stuff but he is talking about now not what was made almost 10 years ago

I think Dice has the "Balls" to leave the modern war setting. This generation of consoles alone we visted Vietnam and World War 2 with both Bad Company 2 Vietnam, and Battlefield 1943.

Putting that aside, in the article they speak mostly about Battlefield 2142 and how it would be with the current Tech basically. It really depends how much creative freedom EA Gives Dice.

Battlefield Set in the future yet again I think would be amazing. Not comparing these two games in any way but Black Ops 2 also pushed into the future and I think that could really give Ea / Dice a push to make a more futuristic game, though riding around in a mech would be more interesting then a silly killstreak ;)

2142 came out in 2006, its infinately better than bad company 1 and 2 and much better than bf3 on console with on 11 players with you on your team....thats not battlefield

thousands still play 2142 everyday

Reading the article once in a while usually helps you avoid stupid comments like these.

I guess you didn't read the article. It was the producer for 2142 who was interviewed. He was saying that with the upgrade in the engine and technology overall, a sequel to 2142 would be outstanding.

Why would Gordon talk about projects he was working on?

Don't know if EA would let them.

ZodTheRipper1257d ago

I guess not since they are still trying to take over the huge COD audience.

Which will ruin the game just like it has numorous other shooters like bf and halo

mcstorm1257d ago

@LAWSON72 I don't think Halo has been ruined at all. IMO Halo 4 MP is the best halo MP so far. followed by 2 then 3 and then reach.
343i kept Halo core but added a few extra bits in which makes the game better imo. Being able to join a match part way through makes it quicker to find matches. I also think the Power up option in Halo 4 is better than having guns lying around on the game as it makes a more level playing field rather than everyone dashing to a cetin point in a map to get the most powerful weapons.

But its each to there own when it comes to there game types.

I hope they have the balls to make a good game. I though MW3 and Black Ops 2 were terrible, though Spec Ops survival would easily be worth the money alone if it had 4 player with drop in-drop out and leaderboards like Zombies has. I though BF3 would really be the CoD killer, but after playing BF3, CoD feels like the best game in the world compared to that crap.

stu8881257d ago

Don't say that around here. This is Battlefield country. Must say I agree to an extent - on console at least (I haven't played it on PC).

Campaign was absolutely rubbish, graphics - average at best and the multi-player... took 20 mins to find anyone. But I can't say each COD is much better either.

aiBreeze1257d ago

I think it depends more on how tight EA's leash is around DICE as opposed to how big DICE's balls are. As EA will see it, it makes absolutely no sense profit wise to allow DICE to leave the modern setting.
