BF Early Access Possible

Karl Magnus Troedsson talks about the possibility of offering future games in the Battlefield series as Early Access titles, reports GameInformer.com after chatting with the DICE general manager at E3. Arguably this is adding a name to how the series has always been created, as Battlefield games have traditionally shipped with a fair share of bugs. Here's word:

Throughout the conversation, Troedsson referenced an increased desire to involve the community in the development process. "We have nothing to announce, but we are having discussions when it comes to [early access]," Troedsson told us. "It comes not from a business perspective, but more from a perspective of if it would help us have a stable launch of the game."

Conversations haven't yet progressed to involve price point, and if DICE were to do it, players would be involved in the conversation about whether to proceed. "We would ask our players in a controlled way," Troedsson says. "We probably wouldn't open the floodgates for everyone, but we might do it for geographical territories or people who bought the last game. Yes, it is something we are considering, not from a business standpoint, but from one of creating quality in our products."
