DICE will "definitely" look at its back catalogue of Battlefield games "first" for the setting of the next Battlefield game, the series' producer has told

DICE's most recent Battlefield game, the downloadable Battlefield 1943, was set in World War II. The upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company 2, due out for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on March 5, is set in a Modern Warfare-style near future.

Details on the setting of Battlefield 3, confirmed to be development by EA in June last year, are yet to be revealed.

When asked if Vietnam was a setting DICE would like to return to, series producer Gordon Van Dyke told "I'd love to do any of them. We have such a wealth of back catalogue stuff we could pull from and do something similar to that, that it's almost mind-boggling.

"Right now, anybody's guess is as good as mine on what we could do. But definitely know that the back catalogue is a great resource for us, and we definitely would look there first - for a little inside scoop!"

DICE has used numerous time periods and real-world conflicts as settings for the long-running Battlefield series, including World War I, World War II, modern warfare and indeed Vietnam.

Could Battlefield 3 see the series return to Vietnam?

I loved every Battlefield game, and have pre-ordered BFBC 2 for PC. Whatever they do it will be awesome. I am hoping multiplayer in Bad Company 2 will be an updated/modern Battlefield 2 with all the same (and more) features. If not, I think BF3 needs to do that. Leave it to the mods to make up the crazy scenarios afterwards.

Modern day D.R. Congo. Diamonds and guns.
WWII North Africa. Antiquities and guns.
Fort Knox. Gold and guns.
Mexican Border. Drugs and guns.
Or they could get really serious and do Kosovo. Guns and guns.


Battlefield: Black Ops. Can do all of the above with that including a WWII prologue.

Would love them to visit Vietnam again, I feel that one had a lot of promise but was let down in the fact it was a gap filler.

Wes forgot to mention Battlefield 2142... which, on second thoughts, is probably a good thing.

I'm not even thought about Battlefield 3. Bad Company 2, is what I'm mainly focusing on this year for FPS games. The beta was excellent and its released two days after my 18th. Really helps as well :laugh:

Would like it to be Vietnam. I have only played Conflict Vietnam, which was great with friends because of the co-op.
