Battlefield Hardline

Battlefield May Be Transitioning To A 3-Year Development Cycle

EA has stated that the way in which future Battlefield games are developed could be changing.

When asked about whether or not Activision’s move to a 3-year development cycle for the Call of Dute franchise had any effect on how EA is currently handling the Battlefield franchise, EA Studios EVP Patrick Soderlund said the following:

“What they [Activision] are doing mimics to some extent how we’re thinking. Obviously, more time, if managed correctly, yields a better product. So I would say that we’re similarly aligned, and that we’re taking a similar approach, but we haven’t articulated exactly what teams are working [on], because that would imply announcing things that we can’t right now.”

This would be a very wise move for the Battlefield franchise as a whole, because just about everyone agrees that the Battlefield 4 launch was a disaster. With many left unimpressed with what the Battlefield Hardline beta had to offer, it’s probably a good idea for them to take a little more time to fully-realize future installments.

Check Out Some New 'Dragon Age: Inquisition' Screenshots

Bioware and EA have ahead and released 4 new screenshots from the upcoming RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition. The screens show off some stunning landscape shots found in the game.

The game runs on DICE’s FrostBite 3 engine, and it’s safe to say that the engine is capable of some truly incredible things. If all else fails, there is no question that Dragon Age: Inquisition will be a visually-stunning game.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is being developed by Bioware for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Check out the new screenshots below.

EA Reveals Many Games Going Offline Due To GameSpy Closure

EA has just revealed that many games will be going offline due to the closing of gaming website GameSpy. They will all shut down on June 30th and although the company is looking into other ways to keep some of these games afloat, there are no solid solutions or plans that have been proposed.

The company said the following in an update on their website:

“Since GameSpy’s announcement, our teams have been working to evaluate options to keep services up and running. Unfortunately, due to technical challenges and concerns about the player experience, we do not have a solution at this time. Online services for EA games on the GameSpy platform will be closed down at the end of June.”

Some of the games that will be effected by this are Battlefield 2, Crysis 2 and Star Wars Battlefront. For a full list click right here.
