After a handful of hints and teases, Battlefield fans got the news they were hoping for today from developer DICE LA on the future of Battlefield 4.
“With Battlefield 4 Final Stand released, we hope and believe that you will enjoy it together with the rest of the game for a long time,” the studio wrote in a recent update. “However, there is one thing we want to assure you: there is more content coming for Battlefield 4.”
Beyond that, not many details were shared.
“We will share details on exactly what this new content will be, and when it will arrive, in the near future,” the note continued. “We understand that this may lead to even more questions about our plans, but rest assured that we’ll get back to you on the future of Battlefield 4 when the time is right.”
One thing we can be fairly certain of is that some of the additional content might arrive in the form of “classic” Battlefield maps reimagined for Battlefield 4. What we’re uncertain of is whether or not it will be free or included in Battlefield 4’s Premium subscription.
“We’re aware of – and humbled by – the many requests of re-creating classic Battlefield maps within the Battlefield 4 universe,” DICE LA teased. “Now we have a question for you: if a reimagining of a Battlefield classic map was to happen, which map would that be?”
So, what map would it be? Tell us in the comments below and be sure to cast your vote here in DICE’s official poll.
When told by fans that the new content ‘needs’ to be free, DICE LA Producer David Sirland responded, “Indeed, it does.”
