Battlefield Hardline Won’t Affect Battlefield 4’s Development

By on

There has been some buzz going on about the leaked trailer for Battlefield Hardline, the next game in line with EA?s first person shooter series. The game has been officially unveiled by EA but that doesn?t mean that the company is finished with Battlefield 4.

According to EA DICE Vice President Karl Magnus Troedsson, the introduction of Hardline in no way means that they are done working on Battlefield 4. That?s actually quite far from the truth. The Visceral team is the one leading the development of Hardline while the DICE team is continuing their efforts for Battlefield 4. The existence of Battlefield Hardline will not affect Battlefield 4 and vice versa.

Troedsson elaborated on a few items that they are doing to continue to improve the Battlefield 4 experience.

Continued Support

There are dedicated teams based in Los Angeles, Uppsala, and Stockholm that will continue to address any player issues that happen. DICE is also looking to make significant addtions to the game as well. They are also working on a major update for the Battlefield 4 netcode.

Community Test Environment

The Community Test Environment was launched earlier this month and DICE is planning to expand it even further. CTE is used as a lab environment of sorts where DICE looks to continue testing out new additions and improvements before going live with them. There are also plans to expand the CTE program to give more players the chance to test the new add-ons.

Even More Features

There have been features that have been rolled out recently like Squad Join, Loadout Presets, and Rent-A-Server. These features have been directly requested by the community and DICE is happy to announce that this trend will be continuing in the future.

Troedsson closed out his announcement by saying: ?The games we develop are services. We focus on taking care of the games post launch, delivering new content to those of you who want it and always working hard to increase quality of play. We also continue to work hard to keep investing in areas where you tell us you see opportunities for improvements and new features.? Yes, we?re very excited to partner with Visceral on the development of Battlefield Hardline, but ongoing work to refine and enhance BF4 remains a top priority.?

This should put worried fans at ease as the good news about all this is that instead of having just 1 Battlefield game, there?ll be another one to look forward to next year.
