I think theres a question that we all want a rock hard answer for. Will desert combat go for BFV? I saw on another forum that they said they will but the gamer didn't have any proof.

There's an article in Computer Games magazine (issue 162) about the DC team working with EA/DICE on the next "unnamed" project. If I get time I'll post the entire article later.

Well, here it is. Took longer to get this posted than I wanted, but sometimes RL gets in the way of fun. It doesn't mention anything about porting DC to BFV, but I imagine they'll do it. Computer Games Issue #162 Deal in the Desert Desert Combat developer Trauma Studios enlists with DICE One of the most successful mod makers is going pro. Trauma Studios, creator of the wildly popular U.S.-vs.-Iraqis “Desert Combat” for Battlefield 1942, has signed a year-long $550,000 deal with the game’s developer, Stockholm-based Digital Illusions CE (DICE), to work on an unnamed project. “We are very excited to be working with the DICE team on this project – it was very encouraging that DICE thought highly of ‘Desert Combat’ and the way that it has helped the growth of Battlefield 1942 community,” says Trauma founder Frank Delise. “There are not a lot of details that I can go into, but I can say we are doing contract work with DICE on a future project. The term is somewhat open and we look forward to building a long-term relationship with DICE and its publisher, Electronic Arts.” The move, which has been rumored in modding circles for some time, doesn’t come as much of a surprise because Trauma has always been one of the most professional mod houses out there. “Desert Combat” is certainly regarded as first-rate work, on par with that of many commercial developers with a stable of titles in the stores. The company has also built a strong relationship with DICE and EA, as Trauma worked with both companies on the Battlefield Mod Development Toolkit. This set of community tools has proven to be something of a cornerstone for the building efforts of the Battlefield 1942 mod community, so “Desert Combat” could be considered the granddaddy of the game’s many modifications. Delise admits that the DICE contract is something of a dream come true. He started work on “Desert Combat” because of a love for modern military games, although he admits that he’d hoped that it might eventually pay off with a development contract. It also gets him one step closer to the goal of turning Trauma into a full-fledged development studio, which is the final objective in his long-term growth plan for the company. At any rate, Delise promises that work on “Desert Combat” will continue for the foreseeable future, even with the DICE contract. As an example of this commitment, the version 0.7 upgrade was released after the DICE deal was announced. -Brett Todd
