Battlefield 2 Announcement

This Digital Illusions Press Release has the official announcement of Battlefield 2, albeit in the developer's native Swedish. In conjunction with the news, there are Battlefield 2 Q&As on GameSpy and IGN, each talking with Scott Evans, executive producer on the project. Sparing us the vagaries of online translations, an English version of the announcement is also online:
April 20, 2004--Move out soldier! Electronic Arts (Nasdaq:ERTS - News) and Digital Illusions today announced that development is underway on the sequel to the award-winning Battlefield 1942(TM) PC game. Battlefield 2(TM), scheduled for release in spring 2005, moves the franchise forward in time to invade the high tech frontlines of modern warfare. Powered by an all new game engine, Battlefield 2 brings the intensity and excitement of its predecessors, Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield Vietnam(TM), into the modern era with the latest, most technologically advanced vehicles and weapons systems available to man.
In Battlefield 2, players will choose to fight for one of three military superpowers: the United States, China, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition. Armed with the latest modern weaponry, players can take control of any of the game's 30+ vehicles to engage in major conflicts with over 100 players in some of the largest online battles on the PC.

Battlefield 2 features immense, richly detailed, destructible environments, from city streets to remote forests, in some of the most notorious hot spots around the world. Each map in Battlefield 2 adjusts in scale to support the number of players in the world, providing the ideal vehicle-to-player ratio and an optimized game play experience. Enhanced team play features allow players to enter the action on the front lines as part of a formal squad, or work behind the scenes in Commander Mode to direct the strategic assaults of their teammates. With in-game success, players increase their rank from recruit all the way to General and unlock awards, including new weapons, vehicle decals, medals, and more.

I agree on how "middle east coalition" is a bad decision for a name. Afterall, most of the middle eastern nations supported the US during the first Gulf War. And much of the war bill of that war was paid for by Saudi Arabia and eventually Kuwait. (85% of the Gulf War was paid for by foreign countries, according to the Dept of Defense) C&C Generals had the GLA: Global Liberation Army. Something like that is more suitable. Finally, why the heck is modern China constantly being shown as the new enemy in movies and games?! I feel like if you really look at what's going on over there right now, and then study China's 20th century history as a whole.. you find no reason to believe China will be attacking the US, or join the "Axis of Evil". That being said, the Chinese government *does* believe the US will eventually attack THEM. And there are decent amounts of history to show the US is quite capable of doing that. (Visit the National Security Archive's website and look for the de-classified documents where the Joint Chief of Staffs seriously consider using nuclear weapons to kill millions of Chinese civilians in the 1950s [collateral damage of course].. sheesh! It's been 50 years since such talk was acceptable, but 50 years is not considered a long time in many political circles.....)
