No Battlefield 3 Mod Tools Planned

This Battlefield 3 video Q&A features GameStar's interview with EA/DICE's Patrick Söderlund talking about Battlefield 3 (thanks GameSpy). One of the community questions they ask is about whether they plan to release mod tools with the game, to which Patrick says no: "Well as of now we're not going to make any modding tools, no." Here's his reply when asked why: "'Cause if you look at the Frostbite engine, and how complex it is, it's going to be very difficult for people to mod the game. Because of the nature of the set up of levels, the destruction, and all those things, it's quite tricky, so we think it's going to be too big of a challenge for people to make a mod."

From what I've read, it's not about the players being stupid, it's about DICE's code monkeys being out of their damned minds and creating such convoluted infrastructure. It even negatively affected their ability to patch Bad Company 2, because it was such a hassle (for the developers!) to go in and make some changes.

It's not like he said "screw you, we won't allow modding," they just won't be releasing tools for it. Since when have they released any official mod tools for Battlefield games anyway? It's always the community that figures it out for themselves. How could you possibly be upset, or even surprised, by this statement?

Bull. How hard is it to release map tools?
