According to Battlefield 4 executive producer Patrick Bach, the upcoming Battlefield sequel will definitely not include motion control support.

Talking to Edge Online, Bach mentioned how DICe has been approached about incorporating motion controls in Battlefield 4, but declared that the company is just not interested in including them—or anything that doesn’t “make the game better.”

“We are not interested in things that don’t make the game better,” Bach said. “There are a lot of gimmicks—people throwing money at us—’can you implement support for this quirky control thing.’ No, it doesn’t make the game better.”

“Touch screens used to be a gimmick, because no-one could get it to work until iPhone came out and used it right,” Bach added. “It adds to the experience, and now everyone is doing it. To us it’s the same with motion control and perceptual gaming in general; if it adds, great. If it’s a gimmick, ignore it.”

Battlefield 4 is set to launch on PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and next-gen consoles reportedly this fall.
