Volition boss wants Battlefield studio DICE to resurrect Red Faction

After Red Faction Armageddon's disappointing sales figures in 2011, THQ quietly put the series to bed, not long before the publisher itself came to a messy and highly-publicised end. Nordic Games promptly snapped up the rights to the franchise, commenting that it had a "good concept" to work with, and is already discussing possibilities with as-yet unnamed developers.

According to Volition's senior producer Jim Boone, however, there's only one outfit qualified to carry on his studio's legacy - DICE, developer of the deformation-happy Battlefield series and the much-touted Frostbite engine. (Dice, Industry, Jim Boone, Red Faction)

A fps Red Faction game by Dice? im in, I loved the early Red Faction games, more the original, played the hell out of multiplayer

Me too, I loved the multiplayer of the FPS games. Shooting at the roof above you, so an enemy player would fall through and then own him. Great stuff with lan parties:)

It started as an FPS shooter.

No not with the Frostbite Engine! The Geo Mod 2.0 engine is more better! Just look at Red Faction Guerilla.


GeoMod 3.0 for next gen please...It screams next gen!

Yes please.

Three things.
1. Competitive Multiplayer
2. Destruction of buildings
3. (in the multiplayer) Siege mode
