Anyone seeing some similarity between this and the alpha footage of BF2?

That is only concept arty though and the none of the maps will looks like that, well you can see the art style. So the devs said.

Some news from E3:

According to EA, there will be a new Battlefield and Medal of Honor game every other year (new MoH next year, new BF in 2013, and so on). DICE will be doing the Battlefield series and Danger Close will be working with MoH. Both companies will have two years two develop a new game.

One of the reasons for this is that EA wants to take full advantage over big technology investments, such as Frostbite 2. So probably, the Medal of Honors will be using Frostbite 2 as well.

Of course they are... Making unique blockbuster games has become really expensive and time consuming... Better to milk the cashcow - CoD style!

EDIT: Maybe we'll even see a WWII title comeback on FB2!  ;)  But, still I wouldn't get my hopes up...

Well I can't except them to make a new and better engine every two years. But new content and concept, that'll do.
If they were smart they make sure it backwards compatible with the other games. Meaning that it won't split the player base over multiple games.
So one moment you are playing BF3, the next moment the server switches to a Medal of Honor II map.
Something like that.

Yeah, milk every damn Dollar from each sucessful game series!

Well done EA! You´re about to turn a classic game series into just another "Meh"-series, like CoD or FIFA. Atleast we still have good and gamer-friendly publishers, such as Valve or Tripwire Interactive...

In terms of engines, Frostbite 1 was made in 2008 and evolved into Frostbite 2 now in 2011
Call of Duty's engine however is older, the biggest change was probably Call of Duty 4 which was in 2007, the engine was pretty much the same since then with small changes. Working hard, or hardly working?


The mentality between MoH and BF2 being released every two years is the same as Call of Duty's indeed, but the thing is, there's been a Battlefield every year since '08 with Bad Company and this system isn't related to a single franchise, but two different ones, in the end, we'll see how it goes...


My only question is: what's BTK's theme? BF2?... :-\
I can't see why not, BF2's timeline (early 21st century) is quite a bit before Battlefield 3 (set in 2014), so there'll still be quite a few differences.

Notice it says "Back to Karkand" in the bottom of the picture, that means it's part of the Back to Karkand expansion pack which includes several BF2 maps.

Yep, and Im referring to BF2 alpha footage footage seen here:

Yknow, the stuff that was out before the game was released, where it look completley different.

A new BF has always come at least in 2 years. BF42, BFV, BF2, BF2142, BF:BC, BF43, BF:BC2 and so on. Nothing new. BF4 probably won't come for some time but some sort of BFV/BF2142 correspondent for BF3.

BFV for the world! I still play the game every friday night with mates. I wish theyd make a remake of it, just the exact same concept with better graphics and more air maps.

I'm takin' my freedom
puttin' it in my stroll

Hm, I take you will play PR:V like a mad man once it's released?

I'm not looking forward to BF3 despite being initially impressed with the teaser. Some good titles in E3 completely overshadowed it to me.

They haven't really shown anything of substance about the multiplayer yet(which is what the series is all about, after all), so I'll withhold judgement for now. However, I must admit the graphics in the tank mission they showed were pretty impressive, and of the sort that actually has an impact on gameplay rather than just making the game look prettier. If they have tank combat focused maps like that mission in multiplayer there is definitely potential for them to be a lot of fun.
