Bad Company 2 Mod Support "Out of the Question" at Release

There's a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 interview on BASHandSlash translating a German conversation with Patrick Bach from Gamestar magazine (thanks Joker961). They ask about a few absent features, with Patrick saying the following about co-op: "One of our game modes is squad deathmatch where four players fights against three other squads. Basically this is a coop mode where one fights against a 'superior' enemy. Kind of an online coop mode. And our focus is the online gaming." Of LAN support he says: "But it might be that we will offer this later." He also indicates the game will definitely not have mod support out of the box: "The player can change settings on the dedicated server but there won't be modding tools included in the retail game. The reason is the same as coop mode. That is, we decided to focus on other aspects because we want to achieve the highest levels of quality possible, rather than a buggy game with average gameplay but with modding possibilities. Theoretically we could still add mod support after release, we just don't know yet. But it's out of the question for the retail version."

As for lan support, I can't really get upset about it because the entire industry has moved away from lan party functionality sadly.

Well I'm upset. Just because some of the industry has left out LAN support in the last year or two is no excuse! LAN support is one of those features that really catapulted the industry into the mainstream.. and quite frankly, it wouldn't have enjoyed the success it has without it.

Leaving it out is a slap in the face to the hardcore players. In the end, this is about control (probably in the name of piracy) and it pisses me off.
