With this multiplayer experiment going every way but right, it's time for Battlefield to return to what made it so great - a fun single player mode coupled with classic multiplayer.
^^ THIS .
Yes, because there is no way they could screw up a BFBC 3 like they just did the last 2 Battlefield games, right?. /s They're not the same DICE devs they used to be they're just EA puppets. You will just keep getting COD/APEX/SEIGE BF games now, because idiots keep throwing money at EA for this garbage.
BF is dead especially after this abysmal release.. what have EA done to this beloved franchise.. it’s really upsetting they are so far disconnected from what the actual fans want from this series.. such a same If they would of made BC3 and stuck to the same formula as BC2 but gave it the next gen treatment it would of been a massive hit
Tbh, I think BF 2042 was a battle royale, and then they changed direction mid-development and didn't have enough time to finish it properly before EA's deadline. Specialists make more sense in a br, for example. Like Halo Infinite before its delay, it needed at least an extra year of development. When you think about it, Infinite had 6 years and BF 2042 had just 3 years. It seems that's just not enough time to make a high quality AAA game anymore.
Here's evidence for BF 2042 originally being a battle royale game, heavily influenced by Apex Legends: https://gamerant.com/battle...
It did start as a battle royale. It’s pretty obvious. All the pieces are there.
Thing is i dont think they're capable of capturing what made those fun/different anymore.
They actually admitted that in an interview a while back. They quite openly said they had no idea what made those games so popular and how to recapture it. Maybe if they actually went and played BC2 they would find out.
I mean, if they can bring back fun Star Wars single player games, anything's possible, yeah?
I think that says more about the people working on games nowadays. They have no idea what they are doing and aren't true gamers themselves. Because gaming is a billion money industry they follow the orders of the business men and investors who only look at making maximum profit of games. Look at the beta and the launch of Battlefield 2042 alone; how can you not see the negative reactions of the community coming? That alone tells us enough of the people involved in making the game.
Really? They don't understand what made the Bad Company games popular, or they just don't want to admit what made them popular...That is most likely what the creatively bankrupt writers of the Disney made Star Wars films say about The original trilogy. They don't want to admit that the people before them were just better and that ALL the things that make the Bad company games great are the same things that they probably deem "problematic". Just think how they would destroy Haggard if they made a new game? Everything about his character makes modern game developers sob and run for the first safe space filled with teddys and the soothing voice if Anita Sarkeesian piped in from a speaker in the ceiling.
Like Ubisoft and the recent Splinter Cell rumors, I don’t trust EA/DICE in its current form anymore. They’d find a way to ruin Bad Company 3.
Bad Company 2 was amazing but I'm afraid they'd mess it up with a new game.
Better yet remake with new engine and new coat of paint. Plus all the bells and whistles of next gen
BFBC + BFBC2 remasters for next gen. skip last gen altogether. lower chance for them to screw it up rather than trusting them to make a new BFBC3
EA knows players want BC3 the same way Activision knows players want MW2 back. They will not make it because the goal is to make games built around MTX and Battle Royale.
Very strong point. I see the light
Companies barley listen to their fanbases anymore we’re prolly gonna get something like Battlefield: The Civil War before BC3.
If they knew how to make another Bad Company they would have by now.
"We need a game featuring single player and a solid multiplayer" Wow! What an amazing take. Whoever thought releasing a proper videogame was a good thing. Of course, you want this from the same team who failed to release a competent product two times in a row now.
I been saying that since before. Bad Company 3 is all we need!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bad Company 3 would be ruined Instead of taking BC2 and refining it while making the things people loved even better they’d just shove it full of gimmicks and shit nobody likes They wouldn’t keep it the same unfortunately they’d literally just use the name to get fans hyped
I’m so tired of every game having the exact same features as every other game. Every games a hero shooter. Every games got a grappling hook. Every games got silly quips and marvel humour. Every games toning down the violence. Every games ripping out content to put it on a store. Etc. It’s so lame.
I agree....Except the grappling hook, I like the grappling hook :P
No shit……EA and there addiction to online only has ruined BF……a proper and compelling offline sp campaign along with a solid mp experience is what every iteration of BF should have day one. Not some shallow garbage put together with the bare minimum effort to try and milk the fanbase after charging them full,price for a half baked lazy effort like 2042. Devs have gotten lazy and are just looking for profit with no effort. The devs who do this need to be called out and not be supoorted at all. Vote with your wallets and demand better. Maybe that will wake them up from the slumber they are in.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I really wish Battlefield games would/could just be Battlefield games again. They keep trying to push it into multiple different directions at once, and they believe they need to make it bigger and they need more players on their huge maps. And they’re wrong. When it comes to Battlefield, just keep it simple (, stupid), so we just need Conquest (5 flags), we need some cool gorgeous fun well-balanced maps, not too big, not too small, and 32 vs 32, or MAYBE 64 vs 64 players is more than plenty. Well balanced but clearly defined classes, and 1 match shouldn’t be a huge investment of your time. 25-30 minutes tops. That’s it. That’s all it takes. 8 - 10 good Conquest maps at launch. Follow that up every few months with a new map in the rotation, and if the base gameplay is good, folks will keep playing for a good few years. It’s not complicated.
Nothing wrong with bf2042 imo, welcome change of direction. Go play the old games if you just want remakes of those.
Battlefield 2042 is more than enough to prove that either management was way too greedy, QA doesn't exist, developers are bad at what they're doing or all at once. If they're going to make Battlefield Bad Company 3, it'll be another fail. And judging by the recent Battlefield trend, it'll be even worse that 2042. Unless some management changes are going happen at those companies and EA + DICE + whoever responsible will start listening to the community (i mean, come on, everyone was screaming at the top of their lungs about how they dislike those new specialists and how buggy the game is, but no one cared, all was fine according to DICE/EA), Battlefield (and any future games) will not improve.
Tried it, didn’t like it.
If anything it proves why they shouldn't bother, they lost their talent. I hope another dev rises to the challenge. Some team with the fire in the belly. With passion and creativity!
They need a new publisher and a new Dev team. Even if they made Bad Company 3 they would just release a broken game with missing content again.
Why the asshats at EA and Dice refuse to listen to what fans want I will never know.
No. If they made BC3 in the modern age it would not be good. They could easily have named the last title BC3 and you would complain how the series is going downhill.
