DICE today announced the development Battlefield: Bad Company 2. B company will have to fight their way through snowy mountaintops, dense jungles and dusty villages, with a heavy arsenal of deadly weapons and a slew of vehicles to help them on their way.

DICE has also announced the summer 2009 release of Battlefield 1943, an all new multiplayer game coming to PC, Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Store.

"Bad Company 2 takes everything that players liked in the original and ups the ante - more vehicles, more destruction and more team play," said Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer Battlefield Franchise, DICE. "Battlefield 1943 is a new take on a blast from the past classic coming to life with brand new technology that we're eager to get into players hands."
