DICE are still keen to revisit the Battlefield: Bad Company franchise. It's not dead, rather the lads are taking a break.
“My feeling is that I would love to do it," DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson told PCGamesN when asked about the possibility of developing another Bad Company title."For me, when we started the company with 1942, it was really a work of passion. And then we worked our way through the era of different wars, and I loved them all, like my little babies. When it came to Bad Company, it was creative freedom; don’t take yourself too seriously.”
“But trust me, the Bad Company [team] isn’t forgotten, they are just on a very long vacation. So they are out there, they’re coming back.”
Personally, we feel that Battlefield 4 should have thrown out its singleplayer offering in favour of a Bad Company campaign, which would have shown off the vehicles and destructible levels while delivering genuine personality and fun factor. Just imagine it: Battlefield 4: Bad Company. Sigh. Still, there's always DLC...
