With Battlefield 3’s fifth and final expansion, End Game, out the door and in the wild, is development on Battlefield 3 officially over? Is Battlefield 4 right around the corner?We do know that we can expect EA and Digital Illusions CE to give us our first look at Battlefield 4, recently confirmed for next-generation consoles, in late April or early May.
As for Battlefield 3, Xbox 360 and PC premium members as well as regular PS3, Xbox 360 and PC users are still awaiting to get their hands on End Game, expected to release later this month. Other than these next few weeks, it would seem that development on Battlefield 3 has come to a close.
Senior Video Director at DICE Roland Smedberg recently said on Twitter, “It’s over. We’re done with BF3. Both happy and sad at the same time, but the future holds exciting things.”
In preparation for these “exciting things,” DICE is also now looking for a brand new Community Manager, originally a position held by Daniel “zh1nt0” Matros, now a Producer on the Battlefield series.
He said on twitter, “DICE is looking for a new CM – I urge everyone to apply.”
A part of the job description reads, “This role shares responsibility for the consumer journey across multiple online touch points and bridging the gap between the DICE studio and the Battlefield community.”
With Battlefield 3 beginning to wrap up and pack its bags, we want to ask you, has Battlefield 3 – released over a year and a half ago in October 2011 – held your attention for the entirety of its life span? Are you going to be playing it all the way up until the release of Battlefield 4?
