Visceral started work on Battlefield Hardline "about a year before [Dead Space 3] shipped", creative director Ian Milham has revealed, suggesting that the game may have entered development in early 2012.
Yeh look i understand about whole bf4 thing EA Made bad move Dice held hands up Tbh if your boss sais do this.. Areyou gonna say shuv it? Thing here guys this is not DICE this visceral games making this.. Not sure using frostbite yes has look of bf and everything easy to think it would be a expanstion. But as long as EA doesnt get involved too much and is complete game not broken rushed like BF4. This just maybe cool we need a Swat based ,bank hiest, guns blazing game. Well i like one. So remember may or may not be a dice engine but not a dice game.
The truth is though, that EA are the ones calling the shots on when the game is released and that was the main problem with Battlefield 4. Still, if the game has been in development for that long, there is no excuses for them not to release a stable working product. Then again, I don't think we'll ever see an AAA game released in the state Battlefield 4 was in, most alphas I've tested were more stable.
I think its kind of whack they are attaching "Battlefield" to the games title for some easy name recognition. You could of just kept it Hardline or the codename Omaha. Then if it did well you could have a whole new franchise to whore out
Guess that explains why dead space 3 sucked.
Dead space 3 didnt suck it got slammed cos the micro transactions did DS 1-2 suck cos same devs man get grip.
No it just sucked, I played them all literally in order over about a course of a week. I had to convince myself to not due NG+ on the first two so I could beat them all then once I got to the third I couldnt even convince myself to finish it
Dead Space 3 was horrible. Boring/Generic enemies, broken ammo system, and co-op that should have never been there in the first place make it so. The only good about it was the fact it looked extremely pretty on a decent PC.
Yet in the trailer is obviously using assets from the recent BF4.
Do you honestly think that a game STARTS by some dude drag and dropping assets? You know there is story planning, feature planning, level design and much more that don't have to even involve somebody touching a computer?
Multiplayer development obviously started last week
Then what's this? https://mobile.twitter.com/... The article says early 2012, one of the developers says end 2012 / early 2013.
<Insert rant to get upvotes here> People need to shut up by saying that this isn't a battlefield game. Battlefield 2142, Bad company 1 and 2 were all spinoffs from the main series, and they were great. This is a spinoff aswell, deal with it. I like the theme, and the fact that it seems similar to Bf2: special forces makes me a happy man. Zip-lines and grappling hooks are two sweet additions. And the fact that Battlefield as a series is going downhill, let's appreciate that Visceral are making this, while Dice focuses on Star Wars Battlefront =)
A bubble for you sir for well said.
I want that gadgets
I think people just have a bad taste in their mouths(me included) after Battlefield 3. But hey, if this comes out bug free then I will play the crap out of it. I will wait to see after release. Not day one sadly. I'm not saying this will suck, because it looks really fun.
that's true, but the fact that Visceral makes this game seems kinda different and cool. Atleast they had alot of time to polish it, as Dead space 3 came out long ago. Maybe Singleplayer will deliver? The impression i got from the 7min video leak was that it's supposed to be like how TV crime series, which i like.
At least it isnt the typical military dudebro FPS. The theme with cops and robbers interests me. Reminds me of Payday but its a lot more refined in my opinion.
I see more ppl saying its basically BF4 dlc, more than it's not a battlefield game
Technically, more of an expansion like Battlefiled Vietnam which was freaking awesome!
I'm loving it, decent dev cycle, now bring us as theis SW game sw1313! come on make it happen!
I'm actually more excited for call of duty this year. Of course all this may change after E3.
About the same time people were begging for Bad Company 3.....
Yea talk about ignoring your fans
I'm starting to loss interest in this game already. I have a feeling they gonna strew it up. You know what EA standards are, "ship now fix later with patch." I'm not gonna rush pick this up day 1 like an idiot. EA got all these other games like Madden and Fifa yearly they don't need a yearly BF.
It looks like a BF4 reskin in the leaked multiplayer gameplay. But I'm interested in the campaign for this playing as cops could be cool.
Oh please these games always start at some far ahead time to make it seem like they have been doing working on this for a long time. I say this because, EA needed a game to switch off of battlefield every off year MoH:WF came out in 2012 and dead space came out just a few months after that. So youre telling me EA knew WF would flop like it did and had you already making hardline before you butchered dead space 3, a game they said they would stop making if it didn't sell well. Just doesn't exactly add up to me
no matter when it started it looks like battlefield 3-4 expansion same engine same sounds and probably exactly the same ultra boring gameplay ...COD and Battlefield need to die ASAP
