Visceral Games Assures That Battlefield: Hardline Will be Shipped in Working Order
Visceral Games has once again assured fans that unlike Battlefield 4, the new Battlefield: Hardline installment will not be a total blunder at launch.
Speaking with GameRevolution at TGS 2014, Creative Director Ian Milham explained that work on Battlefield: Hardline had already begun a year before Battlefield 4 was launched. Hence, giving the studio ample time to work out the kinks in the title.
“We’ve been working with the DICE guys for a long time; some of our engineering work is actually in Battlefield 4 and things they’ve been doing since then. It’s in pretty great shape now and all that work is gonna come into what we’re doing.”
Milham also promised that they are going to release another beta of the game to gather more feedback and to ensure there aren’t “any last minute” issues.
“We take shipping a working game pretty seriously. So, yes, the game will work,” he said sternly and asked fans to look forward to an amazing experience.
Battlefield 4 was shipped while still in a broken state. The game had various compatibility issues, one where players on AMD hardware would suffer random and continous crashes. It wasn’t until two months after the release of the game that a part of the community could even play the game on a regular basis.
DICE kept itself busy in releasing patches to somehow fix the game but even after all this time, the game still refuses to run right for everyone.
