Oh, Battlefield!  Just when we think the dust has cleared with you, you go and throw another grenade into the battle.

During the GDC Europe event this week, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson couldn’t help but talk up Battlefield 4, a game which won’t even kick off its beta until fall 2013.  Karl was very optimistic about the game, but insisted that it will stay in the here and now.

“We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is.  We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series.  Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful,” he stated.

Also, he confirmed that the door hasn’t been closed on the Bad Company franchise, and a third game could very well be happening, although nothing is official just yet.
