Battlefield: Bad Company 2 going “head to head” with Modern Warfare 2
During yesterday’s fiscal Q2 results conference call, Frank Gibeau, President of the EA Games label, made it clear once more that Modern Warfare 2 is in Bad Company 2‘s sights. As Gibeau was lining up upcoming titles based on EA’s original intellectual properties — Army of Two: The 40th Day, Dante’s Inferno, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 — he said, “In March, DICE will release Battlefield Bad Company 2 with all new destructible environments, expanded vehicle combat, and deep new online play with dedicated server support,” not missing an opportunity to once more bring up the lack of dedicated servers in MW2.
“We believe this will put Battlefield in head to head competition with Call of Duty for quality and online game play,” he said.
Gibeau also reminded those listening in on the call of another game in the Battlefield series, Battlefield 1943, and how it has become the best selling Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network game ever after being released back in July.
