Dice isn’t aiming to create any sort of controversy with it’s upcoming shooter all it wants to do is create an authentic and fun game.
Executive Producer, Patrick Bach told Edge;
Were not trying to base it on any political or religious conflict
controversy is probably a good marketing tool, but we make games,”
Our goal isnt to make controversy. I dont want people to feel bad
playing our game. Our goal is to create a fun, entertaining experience.
So we are trying to stay away from things that are real authentic and
real dont have to be the same thing.
No, no supervillains. But you still want your enemy to be clear; you
still want your player character to have a clear motivation thats
something were working on to find the right balance.
Call of Duty has been caught in a few controversial situations over the years and it would appear that Dice is trying to avoid that kind of media attention with Battlefield 3.
