Battlefield: Hardline might be the next big thing for the Battlefield series, but DICE vows continued support for Battlefield 4. In an address to fans on the Battlefield Blog, DICE reassured BF4 players that this doesn’t mean they’re done working on the 2013 release.
Ongoing work to refine and enhance BF4 remains a top priority
“I want to make sure you all understand that introducing Hardline in no way means we’re done working on Battlefield 4. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Visceral team is leading the development of Hardline, while the DICE team continues to drive BF4. We are committed to giving you the best BF4 experience possible,” reads the post by Karl Magnus Troedsson, DICE VP.
So what kind of improvements will we see going forward for Battlefield 4? Troedsson has outlined some of the plans DICE still has for BF4. Troedsson says that the teams in Stockholm, Uppsala and Los Angeles will continue to address any issues that may still occur, and make “significant additions to the game.”
He also says that a “major update” is coming that will improve the Battlefield 4 netcode, and that there are a number of new features that have been requested by the community that are still on the way.
“We’re very excited to partner with Visceral on the development of Battlefield Hardline, but ongoing work to refine and enhance BF4 remains a top priority.”
