Though gravelly voiced soldiers are always keen to point out the many ways in which war has changed
, it certainly hasn't ceased being profitable, least of all in the realm of video games. DICE, developer of EA's popular Battlefield
franchise, has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz
that it currently has five related titles in development. Executive producer for DICE, Ben Cousins, was quite right when he said that's "more than you expect."
With Battlefield: Bad Company
out this week and the free-to-play Battlefield: Heroes
already impressing industry pundits
, we're left speculating about three (maybe more?) additional titles. According to Cousin's comments made at GDC Paris, one will be a traditional game for consoles, while another will be a joint effort with Neowiz, aimed at Korea. As for the third title? We're predicting Battlefield: Field of Battle
, a turn-based card game for the iPhone. What say you?
