DICE Looking To Expand Beyond The Battlefield Boundaries
DICE is well-known for their esteemed Battlefield franchise. Last year's Battlefield 3 was certainly one of the year's best.
And while you can definitely expect more series installments in the future, the developer has plans involving other projects. That's good news, considering the last full game they created that didn't have "Battlefield" in the title was 2008's Mirror's Edge.
DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson told Joystiq that the team has an "ongoing plan" to step outside the Battlefield boundaries and expand a bit:
"We also have an ongoing plan that those products should not only be Battlefield...though I cannot say more than that."
It isn't that DICE hasn't been busy; they've created the Frostbite 2.0 engine EA apparently wants to use in just about every product they've got coming out in the near future, and the team also assisted with Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. But you know, we're really hoping they do a long-awaited sequel to Mirror's Edge. It sold over a million copies and had a great foundation...hopefully, that's what Troedsson is talking about.
