Modern Warfare 3 Developer Apologizes for Battlefield 3 Comment

Posted on October 19, 2011 AT 08:07am

THE BUZZ: Glen Schofield, co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, has deeply apologized for the comment he made yesterday regarding bugs in the Battlefield 3 beta.

Schofield reacted to a comment made by a gamer in regards to the recent 8 million players that played the Battlefield 3 beta stating:

“over 8 million testers. now that is a stress test, not just over a thousand like XP”

To which he replied:

“We had well over a 1000. IW has years of experience with the biggest MP game ever. I surely didn’t c bugs like I saw elsewhere.”

He has now come out and publicly apologized for his outburst saying that he was once where DICE are now and understands how hard it is:

“Bad day yesterday. My deepest apologies 4 bugs comment. I know about new engines, been there a dozen times. No disrespect intended.”

EGM’s TAKE: Schofield has shown respect for the DICE team by coming out and apologizing for a heat of the moment comment. Good on him.

Do you think that it’s time for the trash talking to stop? Leave your thoughts below.
