Posted on February 3, 2011, Ron Whitaker Battlefield 1943 and Bad Company 2 Onslaught Mode Both Cancelled for PC
We’ve been waiting around for quite some time to get our hands on a PC version of Battlefield 1943. We’ve also been patiently awaiting the arrival of Onslaught Mode for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which hit consoles on June 22 of last year.
Well, the wait is over, but now in the way you had hoped. Over on the official Battlefield blog, Karl Magnus Troedsson, General Manager of DICE, had this to say:
We know some of you eagerly have been awaiting Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught on PC. I’m sad to say that these two titles are now officially cancelled. Instead, our talented teams will focus on delivering the greatest possible gaming experience in our next behemoth release. We’re confident this will lead to an even better experience in Battlefield 3, not only on PC, but on all platforms.
This is a letdown to PC gamers who’ve been patiently awaiting the release of both these items for quite some time, but it’s not really a surprise. The last news we heard about BF1943 was when it appeared on the EA Store, and EA promptly refunded all purchases of it, leading us to believe that things didn’t look good for its release.
While we are a bit saddened, we’re still excited to see Battlefield 3, and to find out more about what DICE has in store for us. Once we find out, we’ll bring you the news right here.
