Looks like EA may be bringing the Battlefield series back to World War II, as listings — and a supposed announcement — for Battlefield 1943: Pacific indicate a New York Comic Con showing.

Talk of another Battlefield title due in 2009 has been swirling on the on the official EA forums, with users rooting out details of the unannounced game on a pair of sites, one being the official New York Comic Con schedule.

According to Electronic Arts' schedule at the official NYCC web site, Battlefield 1943: Pacific post cards will be handed out at the show. Yes, post cards. That listing has recently been removed, but is available via Google Cache here. Whether it was removed because someone at EA or DICE had a fit over its stealth reveal or whether the publisher has decided to push the game's official announcement back, we frankly don't know.

Hope it's real! Need a new BF game, none of this Heroes or Bad Company stuff.

It better be for the PC!

I was hoping for a Battlefield 3 announcement. World War 2 has passed its prime.

Probably will be for the PC. The console Battlefield games are the Bad Company series (which a sequel has been announced).

I think this pretty much is Battlefield 3.

Battlefield 1943, get it? ;)

Either way, I just want a new Battlefield game now. When BF 2 came out it was a great time for PC multiplayer gamers like me. I'll get this one anyway, if it is for the PC. I played the hell out of BF2 and it was time well spent.

pretty sure it was for console only:


Some eagle-eyed members of our forums noticed a news post on Jeuxactu.com, a French gaming website, reporting that EA/DICE has supposedly announced a new Battlefield game dubbed Battlefield 1943 Pacific, for Xbox 360 and PS3. Here's the article in question, courtesy of Google Translate:

While the first images of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 are still waiting, Electronic Arts and DICE have announced a new variation of the Battlefield license, which will operate the latest version of the Frostbite engine: Battlefield 1943 Pacific. This umpteenth FPS on the Pacific will allow players s'étriper social Conquest mode on three of the most famous maps of Battlefield 1942: Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima and Wake Island. Destructible buildings, vehicles flying, rolling or floating, the worshipers of the series will not be at home but frankly can unwind in the idyllic scenery, galvanized by the soft roar of 23 other angry. Hostilities begin this summer on X360 and PS3.

The game is being developed by DICE Sweden and will end this year for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Oh come on ffs...WW2 has been done to death. We want modern weapons in a modern era...not pop cap guns and tin airplanes. I do hope if they do release BF1943 then they release BF3 soon after.

Get it.....BF 1942-BF2.....BF1943-BF3.
