Battlefield 3 News Tomorrow?

Following the "watch this space for some exciting news I think you’ll like" Battlefield 3 tease in today's PC BF1943 cancellation announcement, Planet Battlefield notes a few tweets from DICE employees suggesting there will be some BF3 news tomorrow (thanks Ant). Since everyone loves an announcement about an announcement, here goes:

@locust9 - David Goldfarb
Lead designer and writer at DICE. Lead designer Battlefield 3.

    You guys ready for tomorrow? You sure? Really really sure? #BF3

@ViktorALundberg - Viktor Lundberg
Level Designer For BF3

    Tomorrow is going to be rad. That's all I have to say about that!

@Riviera75 - Peter Engström
Frostbite coder at EA DICE

    Isn't it tomorrow yet!?

What I want to see is more options.
- I want to be able to make my own server and not have to shell out money for a dedicated one if I just want to play with some friends one day.
- Bots.
- No crazy DRM(the drm on BC2 was fine since the online authorization was optional, not mandatory).
- No stupid "map packs" that are just the same maps that we already have; make them all available with each mode from the start.
- Lan.
- Maybe some mod support.

I completely agree with all of that. My fear though is that BF3 will be more like the Call of Duty franchise that the old Battlefield releases. If the choice is either tapping the old BF1942/BF2 fans or getting a big wet bite out of the Call of Duty market, which one will they go for? They will spend a great deal of time on a single player mode with modern cinematics for sure. Multiplayer will be the standard of Bad Company 2 but perhaps no more than that. Any of the older MP features of Battlefield like Coop with bots, dedicated LAN servers, mod support would be a wonderful surprise for me.

I really hope they come up with a good surprise or two, I still fire up mods like AIX for Battlefield 2 to this day...
