According to Gameranx, DICE, who develops the Battlefield franchise, among others, will require gamers to be using a 64-bit operating system to play upcoming titles currently in development.
Via his Twitter account, Johan Andersson tweets:
“We’ll have Frostbite-powered games in 2013 that will _require_ a 64-bit OS. If you are on 32-bit, great opportunity to upgrade to Windows 8.”
Andersson didn’t specify which games he was referring to but obviously that means they’ve got some hefty requirements for the next title.
DICE recently released the expansion pack for Battlefield in the form of Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand.
