Battlefield 3 creator, Digital Illusions, has held a long standing grudge against the Call of Duty franchise, with Modern Warfare 3 squarely in their sights for this fall. Maybe it’s because they believe that they make a better game, yet consumers tend to flock to the competition. Then again it could all just be for show. This year’s first person shooter showdown, isn’t the first time that DICE has outwardly claimed that Call of Duty and Infinity Ward are an inferior development house.
In Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s, decidely average single player experience, the developer took multiple pot shots at the Call of Duty franchise, more explicitly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The video below is footage from the game, where in multiple instances the developers deals a few low blows to the competition.
Unfortunately for DICE, at the time they made this game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 had already gone on to sell millions and millions of copies, with Treyarch’s follow up, Call of Duty: Black Ops going on having topped them all.
