Battlefield: Bad Company 3 and Mirror’s Edge 2 have both turned up in a variety of LinkedIn profiles, suggesting they may both be currently in development at EA DICE.
Mirror's Edge 2 would be nice. First game was great and hopefully a second game would make this a franchise that should not be left in the dust like it seems to be in right now.
I just hope both games run on next gen consoles because I think both would benefit from more powerful hardware.
Agreed! After BF3 pc is good to go. BC3 will most likely be in 2013 & idk if there will be a ps4/720 by then. We will find out in june I hope.
New hardware is always a reason to explore new game possibilities. Next-Gen consoles is a very likely target. As the games could look as good as or slightly better than the current Battlefield 3 PC build with engine tweaks. I am expecting 2013/2014 as target dates. Although possible both could drop around same year.
Bad Company 3 YES YESSSSSS
I knew BC3 was going to come some time around but I wasn't expecting Mirror's Edge 2. This seems pretty legit. I thought Mirror's Edge 1 was extremely unique and did a really good job at pulling off the feeling of "parkour." But for Mirror's Edge 2, I hope they put more innovation into the game rather than make the first game all over again. I would like to see something that worked like "Motorstorm Apocalyspe," where there was an earth quake around you. Buildings would be falling and spliting apart, and the objective would be having to survive through all the destruction "parkour style."
Im hoping its a next gen title too.. The Frostbite 2 engine just isnt made for current gen consoles.
The only thing I hope for Battlefield: Bad Company 3 is that they continue on the path of Bad Company 2 instead of Battlefield 3. Battlefield 3 is great and all, but I think most of the competitive Game Battles players would tell you they enjoyed Bad Company 2 and the "style" of play more. I am pretty sure the Bad Company franchise was meant to be to the console what Battlefield is to the PC, so I guess that is what I am getting at. Either way, I am stoked. Battlefield: Bad Company 2, to me, is the best overall first person shooter ever made. All I really want them to do is beef up the graphics, maybe add a few guns and vehicles and leave everything else alone. I think their most vocal fanbase will be more than happy with that and everyone else would have been thrilled anyway. Oh... and I agree. PS4 and Xbox 3 for sure. Let Battlefield 3 bring us out of this generation.
Battlefield 3 isn't bad now, but it was consolized and condensed from what it could have been. Maps are on a smaller scale than you would typically expect. Bad Company 2 had bigger maps. Scale of everything is out of place compared to Battlefield 2 and Bad Company series. Squads are to small, Maps are cramped. Even the largest BF3 maps I have problems seeing as a real quality map. Compared to Battlefield 2 and Bad Company 2 the maps are tiny or just bad. Instant spot in BF3 needs to die. You have no chance of running across a field with it or ever hiding in the grass anywhere. Well because there is no grass to hide in. Battlefield 2 I enjoyed laying in grass as a tank drives inches away from running me over unexpectedly with C4 only a few meters ahead of it. In Battlefield 3 this is not possible. Game was designed to keep people moving without any strategic advantage. Maps bottleneck players. So they always run into you. No artillery, UAV fly by, Supply drops at all in BF 3. Commander mode needs a revival. Bad Company 2 was awesome it had large maps 10 times bigger than Battlefield 3. As well as Smaller maps that were also awesome. Class system was the best as well. Knifing in Battlefield 3 can come to Bad Company 3. Its awesome. Gunplay is just gunplay. Its about the same either way I can adjust. In Battlefield 3 its pretty awesome. Only problem I have with Battlefield 3 is the scale shrinking so much so. I understand the all powerful new engine, but that is not a reason to half-ass map design. Definitely will be on next Gen. I believe. Why? well it can maximize Frostbite 2.x to PC level graphics for your consoles. Definitely a plus.
I'm hoping the writing is better in BC3. The second game wasn't very interesting. It was like a bad rip-off of Modern Warfare 2's campaign.
Wait, what? "One LinkedIn user, Michael Joseph C., states that he “provided video game prototype, design and demo feedback on various AAA titles including the Battlefield: Bad Company 3, Dead Space 2, Devil May Cry 5 and other unannounced titles”, between 2009 and 2011" That development cycle doesn't make a whole lot of sense. 2009-2010 work would have been on Bad Company 2; and 2010-2011 likely would have been Battlefield 3. I highly doubt they had BFBC3 in the works the entire time ALONG with Mirror's Edge 2.
Well they could have had it under wraps with Frostbite 1 tech. Then decided to scrap it and rework it with Frostbite 2.
That seems highly unlikely in my opinion.
