I'm glad that they aren't doing a yearly thing. To be honest, the quicker you put out a game, the sloppier the series tends to get. Just hoping BF3 is as good as 2 (not a big fan of BC).

I remember when they first announced CoD was going annual back when CoD 2 was coming out. I was super excited... Oh how wrong I was...

Battlefield couldn't really afford to come out yearly because of the engine they have, that engine really is something special, well they could release it every year but the console version would be none existent it would be PC only so thank god they don't have an annual game release dates.

When a game goes "annual" it becomes a tired rehash with the same game mechanics and graphics etc.
