The PC version of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 — indeed — is in for a new patch tomorrow. No later than 1 year and 6 months after the game’s launch.
The patch is a massive download (2.6GB) with all the previous updates rolled into it as well. New fixes include getting rid of a few memory leaks, adding performance improvements, and some other housekeeping.
Have a look at the full changelog below. For some more details, head to the official Battlefield blog here.
