DICE has Five Battlefield Games in the Works
The console-exclusive Battlefield: Bad Company was released this week, and PC owners are waiting for the free-to-play Battlefield Heroes as I write this. As if that weren’t enough, DICE executive producer Ben Cousins confirmed at GDC Paris yesterday that there are five Battlefield games in development — although you won’t be seeing them all released worldwide.
The first, of course, is Battlefield Heroes, but you already know all about that. One of the remaining Battlefield titles is a collaboration with Neowiz which will be targeting the market in Korea. Electronic Arts holds a 19% stake in Neowiz, which is the company that operates FIFA Online in Korea.
“Since the start of this year I’ve been working as executive producer for the entire Battlefield franchise – we’ve got five titles in development at the moment, which is probably more than you expect,” Cousins said at the conference.
He wasn’t particularly forthcoming with details on the other games, but hopefully one of them is a true Battlefield 3. 2142 was fun, but it certainly wasn’t a major advancement for the series.
