DICE on Bad Company 3: "Wait and See"

DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson talks with Eurogamer about the future of the Battlefield: Bad Company series, as there are voices clamoring for a return to that sub-franchise, in contrast to the announcement of Battlefield Hardline. "Well you'll have to wait and see," Troedsson said when asked if the Bad Company series would return. "The Bad Company sub brand is something we hold very near and dear. We'll take that into account when we think about the future." Strangely, he admits one of the reasons for being cagy about this is because they can't actually pin down what it is people liked about the first two Bad Companies:

"Some people say they found the multiplayer controls faster and more direct," he said. "Some people liked the single-player and the characters and the humour. People love different things about it. It's starting to almost get to that place where, if we were to make a sequel to Bad Company, what would than even imply?"

He continued: "It's scary to go back and try to remake an old fan favourite when actually no-one can really put their finger on what it is people love. Bringing back the characters and creating a great single-player out of that, sure, I can understand that.

"But some people say this: the Bad Company 2 multiplayer is the best you've ever done. Okay, why is that? It's hard for people to articulate what that is, which is actually hard for us. It would be hard to remake something like that. Can we do it? Of course. We have our theories when it comes to the multiplayer."
