PC BF1943 and BC2 Onslaught Cancelled

The Electronic Arts UK Forums have the announcement that the other shoe has dropped on the PC edition of Battlefield 1943 as Karl Magnus Troedsson, General Manager of DICE, finally admits it has been cancelled (thanks Gamer's Hell). This comes two weeks after a profile for the game showed up in some new NVIDIA reference drivers, four months after a foul up suggested the PC edition had been released, six months after EA started refunding preorders, ten months after the game was promised "soon", and 18 months after the game's release on Xbox 360. Karl also announces that the doubts about the release of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught for the PC were justified, as any plans for that are now cancelled as well. Word is:

This is one of those cross roads where I need to make a hard decision. While well continue supporting Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and previous games, its time to look ahead to the next giant leap for DICE the release of Battlefield 3, powered by the mighty Frostbite 2 engine. Our goal is crystal clear: were going to build the best Battlefield game ever, and well do whatever it takes to make this the biggest launch in DICEs history.

We know some of you eagerly have been awaiting Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught on PC. Im sad to say that these two titles are now officially cancelled. Instead, our talented teams will focus on delivering the greatest possible gaming experience in our next behemoth release. Were confident this will lead to an even better experience in Battlefield 3, not only on PC, but on all platforms.

For an idea of what that means, watch this space for some exciting news I think youll like.
