DICE may be in crunch time as far as Battlefield 3 goes, with the game due for release on October 28, but the studio has plans for projects other than Battlefield. Speaking to VG247, studio GM Karl Magnus Troedsson has said DICE had a few things that might happen in the future.
"Battlefield is the core of the studio. DICE was founded – before my time we did pinball games, racing games, a lot of stuff. Since Codename Eagle came out and followed by the success of Battlefield 1942 it has been a core thing of what we've been doing. Naturally, we're going to keep doing Battlefield games – we love Battlefield ourselves, we're still building the game because we love to play it ourselves," said Troedsson.
"That said, DICE is also committed to not only making Battlefield games. If not for anything else then for our own mental health as developers. It's good to actually have some different creative output to your game development skills. Mirrors Edge was definitely one of those type things that we did, and we are committed to doing other things as well."
What could these other projects be? Could we be getting the rumoured sequel to Mirror's Edge?
"We haven't announced anything, but there are… a couple of things… on the backburner that might happen in the future," said Troedsson. "We'll see what happens."
