Is Battlefield Hardline a True Battlefield Game? Steve Papoutsis has Answers for You
Do you think Hardline is a true battlefield game? Executive Producer Steve Papoutsis says it’s “cool” if you think Battlefield Hardline is not a true Battle Field Game as long as you decide after playing the game yourself.
Speaking in a video interview with Youtubers Chaboyy, Azzy, and TheTwoScotsmen at Gamescom 2014, Steve shared his thoughts and accepted that people are questioning if Hardline is a “True” Battlefield game and said:
“If you don’t think the game is a Battlefield game and you’ve played it, that’s cool. That’s your decision. But, from my perspective, send us some feedback that maybe we can use to make it meet your expectations more because we want to make a great game. But, at the end of the day, we’re excited and passionate about making a Battlefield game and working with [community members] to really listen to the community and try to make sure it lives up to the standards that the fans have of the series.”
Visceral wanted fans to make their own decision about the game and that was the reason they “immediately put a beta up live”, after they announced the game back at E3 this year.
Thankfully, After the problematic launch of Battlefield 4, it seems that devs are working hard on making this installment in the Battlefield series a great and complete experience which the fans deserve. He further added that the last thing he wanted, is to be a part of a game that pretended to be Battlefield.
“When we started working on this game, we had a high degree of respect and reverence for Battlefield. Having played it since the very first Battlefield game, I know how fun it is and I know how much it means to the community, and the last thing I’d ever want to do is be involved in a game that pretended to be Battlefield.
Battlefield Hardline is being build on the Frostbite 3 engine and is scheduled for release in early 2015 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. You can check out the full interview in the video above.
