DICE: Battlefield 4 isn't set in the future, talks Bad Company 3

DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson has revealed at GDC Europe today that contrary to rumors, Battlefield 4 will be set in modern times and not in the far future a la Battlefield 2142.

Of course, the other major question surrounding Battlefield 4 was why not release a new Bad Company after Battlefield 3?

Troedsson explained, "There's a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on. Everything from fans' feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves. It's not just one single thing. And, yes, I know Battlefield 4 is probably the most creative name we ever could come up with. I can't comment any more on that games because it's all secret."

"We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful," he added, before teasing, "That doesn't mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future."

Battlefield 4 is due to be released in November 2013, and players who purchase Medal of Honor: Warfighter will get free beta access to BF4.

I'd like to have seen a "BC3" as opposed to another "BF" at this stage, unless "BF4" has big surprises in store. They'd have to be groundbreaking as the "modern" setting has become over-crowed and to be honest a trifle boring.

BC3 sounds like a better alternative here. BF4 sounds like pretty much same ol same ol - while BC3 has some difference in game mood and feel at least...
