The lights are on
DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson says that the Bad Company franchise still has a future.
When asked about the possibility of a new Bad Company game in an interview with Polygon, Gustavsson said, "I love it. I want to see it again. Whether it can happen [right] now with the newly announced Mirrors Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront... but we'll see."
Despite the company's full dance card, he says that the franchise is still very much alive: "Trust me, the Bad Company [team] isn't forgotten, they are just on a very long vacation. They are out there, they're coming back."
Our Take:While I appreciate the multiplayer depth that the main Battlefield games bring to the table, to be honest I have to say that the less serious, more gonzo Bad Company franchise is more my speed. So, I'm glad that it hasn't been forgotten. Still, given his quote about Mirror's Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront, I'm not exactly holding my breath.
