Don’t Expect Yearly Battlefields Says DICE

August 3, 2011, By Christian Davis

Most popular gaming franchises tend to get in the habit of releasing a title every year such as Madden or Call of Duty. DICE will not go down that road says executive producer Patrick Bach.

“The business goals for us are not to release a game every year,” he said. “To us, we need the time to be able to create the next game that consumers will hopefully like. If we were to release another big Battlefield title next year, that would mean that we’d have less than a year to build it, and that would mean that we’d have to have another studio building it for us, which would mean it wouldn’t have that DICE seal of approval, which would mean they’d just have to release a copy of the game we just released. Ugh, no.”

According to Bach, he believes EA also agrees with DICE. He doesn’t think they would “dilute the vision” of the franchise and eventually kill the franchise. Activision should have thought about that before running Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk into the ground.
