Rumor has it, a new Battlefield game will be announced later this week;

Battlefield 1943: Pacific which may be shown at NYCC soon.

Article here

On a side note, BF: BC2 has also been announced.

If this is true (which it probably is), I'm disappointed tbh. I'm really fed up with the whole WW2 genre for games, movies and everything else =/

Edit:

Release Date set for May 12th on PC and Xbox 360

Hmm :blink:
Battlefield Heroes, BF3 rumours and now this?
About time they at least get the BF2 1.5 Patch out and get something done before they start on "new" game releases...

I'm really hoping for it to be a decent game, but it will probably fail just as hard as Vietnam or try to mimic CoD: WW and fail that way.

Perhaps we should be hoping for it to fail so that they may release BF3 straight afterwards.

Agree Lucky, and my guess is this game will be ported code from consoles, and that will end in fail...

Let's hope it has PB support too.

Does Evenbalance/EA usually announce these sort of things right away or do they wait a while after the game has been announced?

They already announced it for Heroes way back..so I hope this doesn't mean that 1943 won't have PB as that would completely kill the game.

Agree Lucky, and my guess is this game will be ported code from consoles, and that will end in fail...


The coding in BF2/2142 is horrible as well, I wonder if it could be any worse :D

We'll find out...

PS. Release date is currently planned for Summer 2009.

I'm looking forward to it, though I hope they just get back to basics when it comes to ranks and what not. The ranking restrictions in BF2142/BF2 for server admins are extremely annoying and problematic... I think not including an 'official' ranking system in BF1943 would be the key to it's success. It wouldn't be hard for server admins to setup their own stats anyway.

DICE ANNOUNCES BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY 2
2/5/2009

DICE today announced Battlefield: Bad Company 2™, the sequel to last year’s blockbuster title. In this installment, the Bad Company crew again find themselves in the heart of the action, where they must use every weapon and vehicle at their disposal to survive. The action unfolds with unprecedented intensity, introducing a level of fervor to vehicular warfare never before experienced in a modern warfare action game. To get ready for the assault this winter, players can prepare for action in Battlefield 1943™, an all-new multiplayer game available this summer via PlayStation®Store, Xbox LIVE™ Marketplace and on the PC.
In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the ‘B’ company fight their way through snowy mountaintops, dense jungles and dusty villages. With a heavy arsenal of deadly weapons and a slew of vehicles to aid them, the crew set off on their mission and they are ready to blow up, shoot down, blast through, wipe out and utterly destroy anything that gets in their way. Total destruction is the name of the game, delivered as only the DICE next generation Frostbite™ engine can. Either online or offline, enemies will soon learn there is nowhere to hide. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be available for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and the PC.

“Bad Company 2 takes everything that players liked in the original and ups the ante – more vehicles, more destruction and more team play,” said Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer Battlefield Franchise, DICE. “Battlefield 1943 is a new take on a blast from the past classic coming to life with brand new technology that we’re eager to get into players hands.”

Posted Feb 5, 2009 - 09:25 PM

I like the idea of destructible environments, but this being a console port is going to make it fail. And also, 24 player servers? What happened to the 64 player servers that do so well?

Anyhow, I want the bf2 patch.

24 players is probably not a big deal, at least from my perspective. But I suppose if the map is large enough, it'll turn the rounds into slow moving ones. Wasn't 42 more fast-paced? I wasn't around during that time (I'm a spoiled brat from the BF2 era).

I do agree that BF2/2142 are both horribly coded. It's a lot worse when you consider that the weapons and bullet system they use is just as bad and worse than other games (power to the Baur gun!). Download-only? Sorry, I prefer to find my games at a discounted price on the early week(s), thus I rather pick up the physical copy first. That's how I did it with BF2. That's how I did it with Orange Box. That's how I did it with BF2: Special Forces. And that's how I did it with CoD:WaW.

So DICE/EA is making Bad Company 2, BF'43, and BF2 1.5, and then there's the vaporware BF3. Wow. Have they ever heard of "doing one thing at a time?" They are starting to become like the defunct comic company Dreamwave (bonus cookie points to anyone who knows that one).

Posted Feb 6, 2009 - 07:30 PM

BF Series is nothing more than a cash cow for EA At this point, doesn't matter how crappy the game is, they have a big enough fan base, people will buy it off title alone.

And so true about the bullet detection/hit boxes, by far the worse I've seen.. Still remember that Youtube video showing how bad it is in BF2... while running, the hit box is dragged behind you. Horrid

I see no need to buy this.
EA involved, 24 player (and still laggy), full of bugs that will never be fixed after 3 years, over-run by hackers in 24 hours.... Did I miss anything in my easy money predictions?

This is true and its sad because we all are left addicted to games that we hesitate to praise but its stupid because if they were to release a game that properly hit our battlefield spot then we would all be battlefield junkies... heck id inject the dvd into my veins.
