Sweetwater, Haggard and Marlowe will return in a new Battlefield: Bad Company title, Battlefield 4 creative director Lars Gustavsson has suggested, revealing that though B Company is currently "on a very long vacation", they will be "coming back" in the future.

"My feeling is that I would love to do [Bad Company 3]," Gustavsson told reporters last night. "For me, when we started the company with 1942, it was really a work of passion. And then we worked our way through the era of different wars, and I loved them all, like my little babies. When it came to Bad Company, it was creative freedom; don't take yourself too seriously.

"So I love it. I want to see it again. Whether it can happen [right] now with the newly announced Mirrors Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront... but we'll see."

"But trust me, the Bad Company [team] isn't forgotten, they are just on a very long vacation," he continued. "So they are out there, they're coming back."

DICE is currently known to be working on three titles, including next month's Battlefield 4 and reboots of Mirror's Edge and Star Wars: Battlefront.

To help keep on top of its projects the developer opened a new studio earlier this year, transforming Danger Close into a new DICE LA office.

But even with the extra studio on board, don't expect a new Bad Company title any time soon. Back in June, DICE said that though it loved the Bad Company series, a third title was not in "active development".
