DICE promises continued Battlefield 4 support following Hardline announcement

DICE VP and group GM Karl Magnus Troedsson has promised that support will continue to Battlefield 4 following the announcement of Visceral’s Battlefield: Hardline.

“That said, I want to be sure you all understand that introducing Hardline in no way means we’re done working on Battlefield 4,” he wrote on the Battlefield blog. “Nothing could be further from the truth. The Visceral team is leading the development of Hardline, while the DICE team continues to drive BF4. We are committed to giving you the best BF4 experience possible.

“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.”

Troedsson then went on to outline some of the ways that DICE will be improving the Battlefield 4 experience:

  • Continued Support: There are dedicated BF4 teams in Stockholm, Uppsala and LA that will continue to address any issues that might occur. But more importantly will also look to make significant additions to the game.
  • Netcode Patch: We are also working on a major update to the Battlefield 4 netcode.
  • Community Test Environment: We launched and are planning to expand our Community Test Environment. You can see the CTE as our labs environment in which we’ll continue testing out new additions, improvements etc. before we go live with them. We’re expanding the CTE program to give more and more players the chance to test new additions.
  • More Features: Other features rolled out recently such as Squad Join, Rent-A-Server and Loadout Presets, many which have been directly requested by you in the community. This trend will continue.

Visceral’s Battlefield: Hardline was announced earlier this week and will see the franchise move away from warfare to a cops vs. criminals setting. You can find more details about the game here.
