Call of Duty made bonkers bucks this generation by being an annualized series developed alternately by two studios: Treyarch and Infinity Ward (and later Sledgehammer with Raven helping out). Could Battlefield do the same, an analyst asked EA?
please no, yearly releases kills the spirit of games
NO. I like it when a franchise gives us breathing room and a chance to miss it. It also gives the development team time to respond to what worked and didn't.
Honestly the only annual game I haven' got tired of is Assassins Creed. Which is kind of odd, because the sword-play is still the same as it was 3 titles ago. I was actually going to skip IV because I felt a little burnt out by the end of 3. I'm glad I didn't though, Black Flag is fantastic.
@xPhearR3dx I havent played one assassins game the plot was too far out there to start with and all the grinding item quests hell no got enough of that in wow.
@awi5951 You haven't played a single one but already judging them? To each their own I guess.
I hope not. I feel the reason the games are so well done is because they spend more time on them.
If this involves bring back Bad Company then yes..... if not a big NO
NO because your not doing it for us your are doing it for your own greed EA. I see your sales / financials / stock price..
If they can't release a game that's not broken on a two year dev cycle, imagine how bad it will be on a one year cycle.
ROFLMFAO! This IS EA we talking about right? This is a shooter we talking about right? LOL! I needed a good laugh this morning, thanks bro.
NO, but I would be all for Battlefield: Bad Company 3 next year.
Lol EA is probably gonna make it so anyway. What a shit company.
For the last time, no.
while cod sells like it does wont not? if i can do the same thing every year and make money i'd do it, cod is also good for the share holders to get they're money so why not? for us gamers it sucks but if u dont like cod i suppose u can just.....and this is revolutionary thinking here.....not buy it
NO GAME should ever be annualized... Developers should spend time making an EPIC game and then continue support for the game instead of making a bunch of half ass games.
here here even sports games. whats wrong with charging say $15 for yearly updates of players and tranfers instead of half arsed sequels fifa 11 is still my fav footie game no need 4 12,13 and 14
I think it's dumb, but it will probably happen. It has become so much more about money than the games. What a pity.
hell no. but i would like a bf4 bad company expansion pack. a dinosaur mode and a dayz rip off zombie mode.
Yes. /s Seriously, No...
what a stupid article... no where in this did this guy say anything about "mulling" over making this an annual release. This was just to stir up an antbed and get views... but for the record, CoD SHOULDNT BE ANNUALIZED EITHER...
Yes, EA. Ruin another franchise. Rip all its soul out.
Remember when CoD4 made the CoD franchise so worthy of its praise? ...I can't believe EA wants to deliberately destroy one of their flagship franchises.
No it takes them a year to get it working properly. Also it diminishes the brand value.
