When the pre-order incentives for Medal of Honor: Warfighter were announced, revealing next year’s beta program for
Battlefield 4, fans of the series were surprised for two reasons. Firstly,
Battlefield 3 is only just now hitting its stride after a series of major updates and the launch of Battlefield Premium, which will see multiple content
expansions release over the next year.

would be Battlefield: Bad Company 3.
Like the illusive, yet growing in-demand sequel to Mirror’s Edge, another Bad Company title is a certainty, so says Electronic Arts.
Ever since the pretty Frostbite 2 engine debuted with Battlefield 3, there’s been talk about a Frostbite-powered Mirror’s Edge 2. As recently as March a developer resume listed both Mirror’s Edge 2 and Bad Company 3 as projects they had worked on, and according to DICE executive producer Patrick Bach in an interview with IGN, EA is definitely not giving up on either series and would “never kill something that’s great.”
“The Bad Company IP is still something we love and it’s
very dear to me because I worked on both titles. We have no information
with where we are to a sequel to Bad Company, so I can’t tell you
anything about that IP.”
As for Mirror’s Edge 2, Bach says, ”and of course we haven’t killed it, because it’s too good
The question is, when will EA position the titles for release and are both being timed as potential launch window games for the
next-gen PlayStation and Xbox?
Mirrors Edge was a treat and Bad Companys humour and characters outshine BF3's boring stone faced military cod feeling.
