DICE: Battlefield Bad Company franchise not in “active development”
For long-time Battlefield fans, the news that the next entry in the series will be Battlefield 4 and not Bad Company 3 — as most people assumed and hoped — was met with criticism and negativity.
Now, though, prepare for more bad news.
Over on the official Battlefield Twitter, it has been confirmed that the Bad Company spin-off franchise is not in “active development” at DICE. Yep, they’re not actively developing BC3 alongside Battlefield 4 as most people were hoping.
Here’s the tweet in response to a fan:
We love the Bad Company series, but don’t have it in active development. Battlefield 4 is our main focus for the year.
Does this mean we won’t ever see Battlefield: Bad Company 3? I highly doubt it, but don’t expect it anytime soon, either.
Should DICE develop and release Bad Company 3 before Battlefield 5 or is it just a number that shouldn’t matter in the long run?
