DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson has revealed that Battlefield 4 will be set in the modern day.
“There’s a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on. Everything from fans’ feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves. It’s not just one single thing,” he said at GDC Europe. “And, yes, I know Battlefield 4 is probably the most creative name we ever could come up with. I can’t comment any more on that games because it’s all secret.”
“We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful.”
Troedsson concluded by hinting at a possible Bad Company 2 sequel at some point, “That doesn’t mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future.”
