In an interview with AusGamers at this year's GamesCom, DICE's Karl-Magnus Troedsson defended the team's decision to release Battlefield 3 with no mod-support on the PC, but also gave hope to the community by offering a "we are considering it".
He also touched on the 30 frames-per-second versus 60 frames-per-second debate, by reminding us every Battlefield game released on console from there thus far has run at 30 FPS.
"We have heard the community very loud and clear on this topic -- that they want mod tools," he said. "We are considering it, back in the studio. The game won’t ship with mod tools, but we have heard it. I’m not saying that we’re going to do it, I’m saying that we are thinking about it."
