EA and DICE are discussing the possibility of introducing early access schemes for future Battlefield titles to ensure that the games are stable at launch.

DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson discussed the topic of early access with Game Informer during E3, stating that the team has a desire to involve the community at an earlier point in the development process, but quite how it will do this is still yet to be nailed down.

“We have nothing to announce, but we are having discussions when it comes to [early access],” Troedsson said. “It comes not from a business perspective, but more from a perspective of if it would help us have a stable launch of the game.

“We would ask our players in a controlled way,” he added. “We probably wouldn’t open the floodgates for everyone, but we might do it for geographical territories or people who bought the last game. Yes, it is something we are considering, not from a business standpoint, but from one of creating quality in our products.”

DICE is currently holding a closed beta on PlayStation 4 and PC for Visceral’s upcoming entry in the franchise Battlefield Hardline. You can sign-up for the beta here.
