Battlefield 4 will once again be set in the modern era

by | @AttackFanboy | on August 13, 2012

DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 4 will once again be set in the modern era. Speaking earlier today at GDC Europe, DICE GM Karl Mangus Troedsson confirmed that there were numerous reasons that the developer decided to stick with the modern setting in Battlefield 4.

“There’s a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on,” Troedsson explained “Everything from fans’ feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves. It’s not just one single thing.”

“We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful,” Joystiq reports.

Troedsson also spoke briefly about the possibility of return to the Bad Company franchise in the future, but it doesn’t look like that will be arriving any time prior to 2014 or 2015. A beta for Battlefield 4 is due out in fall of 2013, and its assumed that a release will follow shortly thereafter.

Access to the beta is being granted to purchasers of the Limited Edition of Danger Close’s Medal of Honor: Warfighter which is due out this fall.
