According to Visceral, Battlefield Hardline won’t arrive in the same state that Battlefield 4 arrived on release. People might be happy with the experience now, but many were put off by the FUBAR launch.
Creative director Ian Milham cut to the chase in a Gamer Revolution interview.
[quote] “What you’re basically asking is, ‘Is your game going to work?’ and the answer is yes, it’s gonna work,” he said.
“We actually started on this more than a year before Battlefield 4 came out. We’ve been working with the DICE guys for a long time; some of our engineering work is actually in Battlefield 4 and things they’ve been doing since then. It’s in pretty great shape now and all that work is gonna come into what we’re doing.
“We already had one very successful beta, we’re going to have another beta on every platform we ship on. We take shipping a working game pretty seriously. So, yes, the game will work.”
Well, we will see what happens, right?
