This gonna be made by DICE? Battlefield 4 was fun, despite all network glitches. The premise of this one sounds good also so I'm in.
Why did I think EA was going to a three year cycle with their FPSes?
2015: Battlefront (3)
2016: Battlefield 5
Hmm. But I guess waiting till 2017 to release the next Titanfall would be a serious drought for those who want the Titanfall sequel on the PS4.
IF this is their plan... This really could be good for Other games DICE wants to do on the side and for the BF franshice. Its needs a freaking break from two modern Mainline titles back to back.They've already said they plan to rotate BF, TF, and Battlefront. Next year is probably going to be all about Battlefront.
Hmmm, not sure if I'll bite. Never played Dead Space, but the games were highly regarded so I'll see how they end up. Hopefully they keep the gameplay Battlefield is known for.
Im really hoping that this ends up being something along the lines of Rainbow Six, but Im expecting it to basically be a full game around the "close quarters" expansions, or in other words, COD.
I wonder if the "I'm never buying an EA game again" people will buy this after BF4.
It's about as likely to closely resemble Klonoa as it is Rainbow Six. This will be the same loud dumb game that sold 20 million copies in BF3 and a little less than that in BF4. Hopefully Visceral manage to make a good campaign at least, as DICE are just terrible at making a good campaign.
EA are estimating 6 million sales from this, but I think that's a very conservative expectation on their part. I reckon it'll do 10+ million sales, like Bad Company 2 before it.
Until then, Visceral Games' Steve Papoutsis stated that Hardline will be "a brand new series in the Battlefield franchise, set against the backdrop of a genre we all love - the war on crime and the battle between cops and criminals." Papoutsis noted that they're adding "new twists and turns to the foundation of Battlefield multiplayer" while creating a single-player mode as well.
Coming this Fall, Single-Player confirmed.
No its not and on top of that they will probaly just be using BF4 Frostbite so no need to even make a engine at the same time as the game. Unlike what DICE was trying make a game and engine...... on 5 freaking platforms at once.Is it bad that I'm hyped for this purely because DICE isn't developing it?
You think so? The movie is out around Christmas though... Would be better to launch in November for marketing synergy methinks, but them I suppose well be hearing about SW almost every week next year (you know, with actual news), so it doesn't really matter.
Will probably be a May game now that I'm thinking about it.
Yeah, if they're showing it at E3, I see no reason to rule that out.
I feel like an asshole for punishing another developer because they're making a different game in a poisoned franchise. But I cannot bring myself to buy this on day one. Not again. My trust now has to be earned with the Battlefield series.
I sincerely hope I'm wrong. But I'm not going to fork my money over so easily after last time.
