Just because EA and DICE are working on the next game in the Battlefield series doesn’t mean that the publisher/developer pair are finished with Battlefield 3.
The story of Battlefield 3, says DICE, “is still just the beginning.”
According to a post on the official Battlefield blog, even though the existence of Battlefield 4 (and the upcoming beta in late 2013) has been revealed, the team at DICE wanted to “share a few thoughts on the state of the Battlefield franchise” and put to rest any misgivings you have about its future.
“We are extremely proud of Battlefield 3,” the team writes, “and with millions of fans out there, we’re happy you’re enjoying it too. When we launched the game, we introduced unparalleled levels of in-game destruction, all-out vehicle warfare and redefined online gameplay.
“Even with billions of bullets fired and millions of games played, we know the Battlefield 3 story is still just the beginning.”
DICE is also “humbled” by the feedback and response from the millions of players in the Battlefield 3 community, as well as the response to Battlefield 3 Premium.
“With the Back to Karkand and Close Quarters expansion packs already out, Armored Kill around the corner, and End Game and Aftermath still on the horizon, we’re looking forward to many more hours of gameplay with you, and can’t wait to see the stories you will tell through Battlelog and player created videos.”
DICE isn’t ready to talk about Battlefield 4 just yet, however, but the team hopes you continue to enjoy Battlefield 3 and its content for many hundreds of hours more.
