EA has responded to concerns over the fate of the Battlefield: Bad Company franchise following yesterday's announcement of Battlefield 4, stating that DICE is still "very proud and fond of" the Bad Company brand.

"I can tell you that it's not due to any lack of love for BC inside of DICE," replied BF3's community manager Ian Tornay in response to a question on Reddit asking why the next game is Battlefield 4 and not Bad Company 3.

"Everyone I've talked to there is very proud and fond of it.

"What features from BC would you like to see in future games (which is not to say we won't make another)?" he asked in response.

"[I] would be very interested to nail down for myself what it is about BC that is special to everyone and how we can incorporate that magic."

Battlefield 4 was officially announced by EA yesterday following a leak over the weekend.

The announcement resulted in anger and frustration from some parts of the community who claimed that the game would be releasing too soon after Battlefield 3.

Others were disappointed that DICE wasn't developing another entry in its Bad Company series.

I couldn't understand what all the fuss was about.

Release dates and platforms for Battlefield 4 are still to be announced. A multiplayer beta, however, is due to take place in autumn 2013.

The appeal of this game is that it contains most of the elements of a good action video story plus a lot of banter and good humor which makes the charactors almost human thus helping the game to become the exception amongst games of this genre and lets the player identify more easily withthe charactors

I'd like to think (in my won little world) that they're taking their time with it.

I agree with the comments about the four main characters, their previous, their reasons for doing what they do and then how they interact with one another. The snide remarks about other FPS games also made me chuckle.

For me bad company was a very refreshing game in so far as it containes things that other games of this jonre don't have such as a good storyline and plenty of action as well as good deal of humour and banter from the charactors in the game one of the best parts of the game which helps the player empathise more with the game

I heard they were going to change the BC game making it more mature. If that's the case, keep it, no one will play. We like the jokes and funny comments they all make. For me the one thing they could add would be comments when you get killed like; Marlowe, we'd like to make it through this level just once without you dying all the time, or Marlowe's taking a dirt nap again!

I personally thought BC2 wasn't that great, the MP was good but BF3 is better.
