    Battlefield series won't be annualized, insists EA

    Patrick Solderlund, the Executive Vice President of EA Studios, has said that gamers shouldn’t expect the publishing giant to annualize the Battlefield franchise in light of this year’s cops vs robbers shooter, Battlefield Hardline.

    "It doesn't necessarily mean that we need to annualize Battlefield and that's the way it's going to be forever and ever," Soderlund told Polygon. "I understand that some people may look at it that way but that's what happened."

    "The EA that I'm trying to help build isn't an EA that needs to annualize everything."

    Elsewhere, he also promised that Hardline will incorporate many of the fixes introduced with Battlefield 4, which was plagued by numerous bugs at its launch last fall.

    "Everything that we've fixed with [Battlefield 4] will go into Hardline," said Soderlund "Once people get their hands on the netcode patch, which I think is profound, that will take care of a lot of the complaints around Battlefield... and how responsive the game is."
    lol it is $#@!ing annualized already. those expansions are that. i paid 2x the price of a regular game for BF4. how long has it been out? less than a year. yeah, we are stupid, we don't get it. keep talking. not to mention, the content you get in the premium isn't equivalent of one full game.

    corporate motherfuckers are the best.

    cops and robbers is reskinned (what should've been an expansion, what should've been a free expansion due to all the $#@! we put up with in regards to BF4). not annualizing lol.

    yeah, let's go with that, they won't annualize their series' because it takes them a year to fix the issues enough to make the game ready for public. ta dum tishhhh.

    I paid £15 for BF4 so don't feel ripped off, I never buy the premium day one either because thats just dumb, you don't know if you even like the base game so why buy all the DLC at once on day one, it makes no sense to me.

    That's exactly what I've been saying since it was announced. The sole reason they wont let us mod frostbite is because they won't be able to charge us for premium when the community release better things for free.

    Roll on the new UT, let the community create the content.

    i don't do that, trust me. two reasons i did this:

    1) my son wanted the guns we couldn't unlock and new maps.

    2) my friends were getting it so it made sense to do it.

    and well, i had $50 in PSN card.

    That was funny. Thus why I have given up on BF. Not that I was enthralled by the series anyway. I liked Bad Company though.

    i'm gonna keep BF4 until the end of this generation and play it as my BF fix. the premium is already tied to my account. like i said, EA ain't gettin' my money (which excludes battlefront lol).

    Off topic but if Battlefront ends up being exactly like battlefield 3 except with star wars skins, weapons and stuff I may not get it. Prove to me its not bf3 reskinned.

    i have a good feeling that it won't be. just because it's DICE. i think what we're seeing is that DICE is being pushed by the corporate publisher EA and that's all there is to it. DICE is legendary. BF is a trademark shooter. it's one of the first massive war shooters and imo influenced the FPS genre just as much if not more than COD and UT/Quake.

    battlefront is a different beast and i think we might see realistic physics and gun mechanics (which is solely the reason i'm interested) but it won't be a war game...it will be a star war game. i'm excited personally.

    this is one game i might get. and i'm looking forward to Planet Side 2. i think i sound like a broken record at this point about PS2 lol.

    Tbh I prefer they release this reskinned battlefield which takes from BF's core but it isn't BF at all. As long as they don't release an actual Battlefield game every single year I'm good.

    I wonder if they're already planning the following sequels:

    Battlefield 2143 in 2016 (10 year anniversary)
    Battlefield: Bad Company 3 in 2018 (10 year anniversary)
    Thanks to Kwes for the avatar and Sylar for the signature!

    I read his statement and he is full of $#@!. Just ask him about madden and their 25 years of roster updates.

    As of now I'm still a bf fan but if they release the same old $#@! every year I'll be done. Just like I haven't bought madden since ps2.

    It's not being annualized, they're just going to be making a new version just about ever year

    Personally I don't care, I got BF3 for my Son. I've played about 1hr of the campaign, and my son makes my login look bad with a < 1.0 KD ratio. I should really create a sub-account for him to play it

    The campaign was boring me to death, and the story/campaign is the only reason I buy a shooters for myself. That's why I don't buy CoD, BF, ... at least not for myself.

    btw, don't make a sub account. my friend did it when he was less than 18, then he turned 18 and he can't buy $#@! with it or something like that. like he couldn't join PS+, he had to abandon his years old account (that has games associated with it) and make a new account. those accounts don't convert as far as i know or as of yet.

    just make a regular account for him and maybe put restrictions on it. i don't know if that's possible. or just let him ruin your account till then lol.
