Battlefield: Bad Company Team Will be Coming Back, “They Are Just on a Very Long Vacation”

If you aren’t excited for the impending release of Battlefield 4 for current generation consoles at the end of this month, or the next-gen versions in November, creative director Lars Gustavsson revealed at a recent event (via Polygon) that Battlefield: Bad Company will be coming back:

My feeling is that I would love to do it. For me, when we started the company with 1942, it was really a work of passion. And then we worked our way through the era of different wars, and I loved them all, like my little babies. When it came to Bad Company, it was creative freedom; don’t take yourself too seriously.

So I love it. I want to see it again. Whether it can happen [right] now with the newly announced Mirrors Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront… but we’ll see. But trust me, the Bad Company [team] isn’t forgotten, they are just on a very long vacation. So they are out there, they’re coming back.

It remains to be seen if the next Bad Company title is part of EA’s in development IPs right now, or is just something they’re thinking about, so stay tuned for more details as they arrive.

Also, if you still haven’t pre-ordered Battlefield 4 on PS3 or Xbox 360, is offering a $10 credit. As well, Amazon has posted an updated BF4 PS3 box art, which shows off the fact that you get a code for use in the digital upgrade program:
