Quoteworthy: DICE on Lack of Annual Battlefields

"I think the core Battlefield idea that we're working on at DICE is... We can't build a game at DICE every year," Battlefield 4 executive producer Patrick Bach said during Gamescom according to Videogamer. "You saw with Battlefield 3, for instance, it's not that there's not an urge for more Battlefield. You mentioned Premium we [had] 18 months worth of Battlefield and people want more things during that time. Now it's been almost two years and people feel like they are continuously playing we still have huge amounts of players playing Battlefield 3. So I think in general, people apparently want Battlefield all year round."

The lower HP is the least important part of hardcore, even if it does help promote a more tactical way of playing by itself. No 3d spotting, no kill cam, no regenerating health/armor and friendly fire is what makes hardcore and why normal is a joke. I would never have played BC2 and BF3 at all if it wasn't for hardcore. Custom rule servers are too hard to find thanks to these presets and normal just isn't Battlefield anymore.

And yeah, BF4 does make it seem like BF3 was just a giant beta test all along. I'm still hoping for ARMA 3 to be super solid so I can get off this dumb train, but I don't think it's meant to be.
