DICE not working on futuristic Battlefield "would love to make it"

Lars Gustavsson of Swedish dev DICE confirms there's no 'Battlefield 2143' in the works at the studio, "but I would love to make it," he said. A lot of people "ran over and wanted to apply" for 2142.

The sci-fi nature of the futuristic Battlefield affords greater "creative freedom" as its not constrained by a "historical and contemporary" setting. The in-development Battlefield 4 is set in modern day.

Battlefield 2142 released back in 2006 on PC and featured hovering mobile command bases, fancy weaponry and intimidating mechs.

"No, it's currently not but I would love to make it," Gustavsson announced, asked if 2143 was getting a look over. "I would love to do it," he continued. "When we announced in the studio that we were going to build Battlefield 2142, a lot of people ran over and wanted to apply for that team."

"I guess that the creative freedom that comes with a fictional world is something that's tempting when you have made games around historical and contemporary settings for a longer time."

Another popular instalment was Bad Company, with Gustavsson teasing they'll let us know.

"Last we heard from the misfits in Bad Company was a postcard in June from Bahamas where Haggard and the group had opened up a beach bar," he said. "It's really up to them...will keep you posted... ;)"

Battlefield 4 releases in EA's 2014 fiscal year, which begins April 1st 2013 and ends March 31st 2014.

Many "BF" gamers would like to see a sequel to "BF 2142", but for the Titan mode was the only truly intersting side to the game.
