Has Battlefield been moved to a 3-year dev cycle?

Future Battlefield games could be developed on a 3-year development cycle, EA has suggested, moving away from the 18-month to 2-year cycles seen with previous Battlefield titles. (Battlefield 4, Battlefield: Hardline, EA, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

How 'bout a "when it's done" cycle. Quit being cheap with your servers, pretend you care and fix bugs faster, etc...

Thought I should add this ;).

Everything needs a deadline.

You know what happens when you take a "when it's done" approach, you end up with a development time like DNF or Final Fantasy XV.

You design your game, work out how long it will take to achieve that and work to that deadline.

Developers, or in fact any kind of creator, is ALWAYS wanting to add more to their creation, no matter what, they can ALWAYS see things they could have added. There has to be a limit.

Anybody else think BF Hardline will get canned?? It just seems that the game had little interest from most people and the pre orders were really low. Maybe EA realized that is was going to fail big time and just said it was delayed just to see if interest will pick up??

I think they went a little too far with it to can it, they might just make a new IP from Visceral about police and switch BF to a 2 year dev cycle where they would stick with dice

Yea....I think they know it too, hence the delay.

Not only is the game not even close to done or bug free, it's not even fun or worth purchasing.

It's about 50% the game BF4 is, and BF4 is a solid game.

* They NEED to focus on Star Wars Battlefront & Battlefield 5 ONLY for the time being.

I would rather it go to a 5 year cycle like the GTA series..
BlackWolf12  +   68d ago
So you only want one Battlefield game per console cycle?

Pretty sure you can't say that GTA is on a 5 year cycle.

Well GTA 4 came out in 2008 and GTA 5 came out last year

Too long to wait. Prefer Assassins Creed franchise, which occurs every year and I discover new things every year.

This, so tired of modern shooters. Sci-fi or GTFO.

COD Advanced Warfare?
Destiny?

THAT would be a long delay... :)

I still feel BF4 has atleast a year left in it. They would need more DLC though, aside from the final planned map pack.

I love battlefield ,It will always be my time waster after work days. but a 3 year cycle is fine . Hardline can sux balls.Sorry visceral. I loved the dead space series though.
