We already know about the delayed release for the PC version of Battlefield 1943 and we already were given a reason, to make sure DICE can “create a proper PC version of Battlefield 1943 and not a console port.” Better late than broken, we always say. However in a recent interview with Shacknews, DICE dodged and deflected other possible reasons for the delay.
When asked about the potential removal of the 24 player cap and regenerated health in the PC version DICE promptly dodged with their response, “Those are all things that we’re taking into consideration. We know that the PC crowd, they look for some different things in games than maybe somebody on the console. So it’s definitely something we’re thinking about, but we’re not gonna restrict one or the other.” explains DICE producer Gordon Van Dyke.
Aside from deflecting other questions in regards to details when it comes to the delayed PC version, Van Dyke also put the kybosh on any Battlefield 3 rumors, if there was any and asked us to be patient “There is no Battlefield 3 [laughter]. That’s just a rumor! Where’s that PDF? It doesn’t exist! [laughter] [People] just need to be patient and wait. DICE isn’t going anywhere. There’s going to be more games, and I think that those games are really gonna hit what it is that people are seeking from a Battlefield game in the next generation.”
