Looks impressive I have to say. But then which BF trailer didn't?

Yes, but Wolfenstein was never based in reality.

Aside from 1 BF game, all their games have been based in current or historic wars, with technology to match that. Now they're going out of their comfort zone (which is fine), but getting away from what made the franchise successful. This isn't Treyarch adding zombies to a game, and expanding on it. This is a grounded military franchise now taking on alternate reality.

If DICE wanted to do that, they shouldn't have used the BF moniker.

I know its funny when World at War came out people where going "WW2 again, fuck sake" But the scale of the war there is plenty to do.

They also could of gone down the route of making a future BF game, they already did with the excellent Battlefield 2142, but EA really don't care.

On a side note, I would like another Bad Company game, Hardline proved that BC is the only spinoff of BF


They could have just done a WW1 game... yes the actual gameplay probably would have been some of the most boring shit to date, but with fans of COD and BF asking for historical wars, a true WW1 game would have shut them up. And fans asking for older games, would have realized why WW2 games were played out.

yes, but to be fair, BF 2142 was well before Battlefield's audience exploded when it was introduced to the ps3/xbox 360 consoles. Though most Battlefield games are alternate realities anyway, BC1 still had the MEC, an impossibility by today's standards, BC2 took place in a Russian invaded South America for some reason.

Yep, that's the 1 BF game I referred to.

But there is a difference in making a current war or current game based off of global politics taking place at this moment. It's not like they're going to do a Syrian War game or a search for Bin Laden game.

Compared to altering what happened in WW1 with stories that never happened in the first place. There's nothing wrong with that style of game........ if that's what you're known for. BF has made it's audience in the past 8 years, off of a more grounded war approach. It's like they wanted a historical war, but didn't want the restrictions that came with the war.

I mean for that, they should just do a medieval BF game! Complete with flaming arrows, trebuchets, morning stars and beheadings!

BF2 was on PS2 and Xbox, it was cut down and called Battlefield 2: Modern Conflict, so they did make a console game

They could do the forgotten war aka the Korean War, it had WW2 weapons and newer weapons, like the F-86 Sabre and the MiG-15

There are a number of wars they could do... the only issue is that other wars didn't have the definitive ending moment that WW2 or the Vietnam Wars had. WW2 had Russian take over Berlin and Reichstag... Vietnam ended with the Fall of Saigon.

Korean War could certainly work, but then again they're still at "war" since a peace agreement was never ratified. And they didn't have that defining moment in battle, as it was mainly a pissing match between the US and China & Russia.
