Since its inception, Battlefield: Hardline has been seen as the underdog of Battlefield games by many, having to prove itself to the thousands of fans who have come to love the arcade war-emulating franchise.
Developer Visceral Games has made massive strides to deliver the Battlefield game that fans want with Hardline. But, considering the series’ troubled launches over the past two titles, the question on everyone’s mind is, ‘will it work on launch?’
Creative Director at Visceral Game Ian Milham answered the question in an interview with Gamer Revolution.
“What you’re basically asking is, ‘Is your game going to work?’ and the answer is yes, it’s gonna work,” he said, adding that Hardline has been in development for quite some time and things are going well.
“We actually started on this more than a year before Battlefield 4 came out. We’ve been working with the DICE guys for a long time; some of our engineering work is actually in Battlefield 4 and things they’ve been doing since then. It’s in pretty great shape now and all that work is gonna come into what we’re doing.”
“We already had one very successful beta, we’re going to have another beta on every platform we ship on. We take shipping a working game pretty seriously. So, yes, the game will work.”
