[CVG]Battlefield dev: 'We set aside PC too much'

post #1 of 71

DICE general manager, Karl Magnus Troedsson, has said the developer regrets its past neglect of the PC community, and that it's intent on making up it with Battlefield 3.



"I felt that we had, maybe, set PC aside a bit too much," he told Shacknews. "I've said this publicly before, we were very unhappy that we were not able to get a PC version out of Battlefield: Bad Company. It was down to sheer manpower, or lack thereof.

"We just failed there. It's something that we regret but it was a pure fact that we were faced upon," he added.

"We fixed that with Bad Company 2," he said, although PC gamers may debate that considering the lack of the Onslaught DLC pack that came to consoles only.

Battlefield 3 will indeed be the test. And larger maps on 64 player servers seems like a great way to pass it.

I am glad out of all developers they've recognized the fact that we've been riding in the back of the bus for too long. I understand their feelings on Battlefield Bad Company and it didn't even sell that much compared to Battlefield 2 either. I believe Battlefield 3 will once again set the bar for online massive MP FPS games again and it will see better sales than it's predecessor (BF2).

i bet a week or 2 before the release of Bf3 they will release a statement saying ... unfortunately we had to make the game first for console but the differences will be minor between the two platforms.... its all baloney...
Did you just crawl out of a rock or something? Haven't you kept up with the recent media? Have you seen the last video? The last video screamed PC loud and clear.
