Fortunately that won't be the case, as EA Games vice-president Patrick Soderlund made it clear in an interview with OXM that DICE has several projects in the works and they all don't center around Battlefield. When asked whether or not the studio has the liberty to take a few risks thanks to the success of BF3, Soderlund replied:
Well it depends, right? Maybe it is and maybe it isn’t. It’s also important for us – the DICE guys are roughly 300 people in the Stockholm studio; not all of them are working on Battlefield things, and that’s intentional, because we don’t want to become a Battlefield factory.
So, what would you like to see from DICE? A new Mirror's Edge or perhaps another Bad Company? Or (like me) maybe you'd like to see something completely original and new? Let us know in the comments below.
