Todays press release: STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE (http://www.businesswire.com/))--DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio (NASDAQ:ERTS), today announced Battlefield: Bad Company 2™, the sequel to last year’s blockbuster title. In this installment, the Bad Company crew again find themselves in the heart of the action, where they must use every weapon and vehicle at their disposal to survive. The action unfolds with unprecedented intensity, introducing a level of fervor to vehicular warfare never before experienced in a modern warfare action game. To get ready for the assault this winter, players can prepare for action in Battlefield 1943™, an all-new multiplayer game available this summer via PlayStation®Store, Xbox LIVE™ Marketplace and on the PC.

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the ‘B’ company fight their way through snowy mountaintops, dense jungles and dusty villages. With a heavy arsenal of deadly weapons and a slew of vehicles to aid them, the crew set off on their mission and they are ready to blow up, shoot down, blast through, wipe out and utterly destroy anything that gets in their way. Total destruction is the name of the game, delivered as only the DICE next generation Frostbite™ engine can. Either online or offline, enemies will soon learn there is nowhere to hide. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be available for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and the PC.

Using the same Frostbite™ engine, Battlefield 1943 takes players back to WWII. The game offers endless hours of 24 player multiplayer action over three classic and tropic locations; Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima. Delivering the award-winning through-the-gun and vehicle warfare online experience DICE is best recognized for, Battlefield 1943 will have players battling in ruthless aerial dog fights and intense trench combat. Players can see the game in action at New York Comic Con (Booth #1441) from February 6th-8th.

“Bad Company 2 takes everything that players liked in the original and ups the ante – more vehicles, more destruction and more team play,” said Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer Battlefield Franchise, DICE. “Battlefield 1943 is a new take on a blast from the past classic coming to life with brand new technology that we’re eager to get into players hands.”

lots of people aren't going to be happy about the next BF being WW2, but i am! thanks for the head's up. Bad Company 2 is modern warefare though right?

That Bad Company 2 screen looks nice... EA's recent releases must have done well on PC for them to add the PC to BC2 when the first one was console only.

As for 1943, sounds odd... download only on consoles? It sounds almost like a similar scaled-down game to Battlefield Heroes. I look forward to reading more information.

BC1 was awesome, 1942 was awesome so both of them getting sequels is awesome news.

1943 should have been out years ago though but it will be great to see how the Frostbite engine treats it. From day one when I playing Bad Company I couldn't help but think of 1942 and how amazing the game would be on the engine with all that destruction and terrain it covers.

Best news of the year so far. I'm still in love with WWII.(nana2)

So 1943 almost looks like a free to play model. 3 maps and 24 players per server?? pfff, They announced a while ago that they were working on a second free to play game besides heroes, but this prolly isnt it. Decent news is Bad Company 2 coming to pc. I'm still disappointed that pc gamers are getting the shtick with a console game. I want Battlefield 3!!!

I have been waiting for this for so long now. Finally an FPS to replace Crysis Wars for me. I got sick of the glitchy futuristic bf2142.

I'm going to be pissed if it gets released to PC with 24 players and 3 maps. Complete BS. It's just a console game on the PC. I truly hope they make it a real battlefield game instead of a crappy knockoff.

Sums up my views. Still excited though.

Anyone else think that BF 1943 looks a little cartoonish as if the art style from Heroes influenced them? BC2 looks much more realistic to me.

that trailer looks awesome! can't wait for BF1943. but whats this talk about 3 maps? surely they wouldnt even consider selling a game with only 3 maps .. as much fun as it looks i cant see spending the money on a game with only 3 maps. please let it only be a BAD rumor!

The 3 maps stem from the 3 campaigns in the game. Who knows if more then one map per campaign.... then again we're talking EA here. If this is a $15.00 download to hold us over till BFBC2 and they provide map tools then I'm ok with that. If they think they can charge us 25 for 3 maps no tools and no support... they can pond sands. We have CoD6 and DFX2 coming out as well.

WTF is this, 24 players, 3 maps?! They have a game like that, it's called Battlefield Heroes. Give me a REAL Battlefield with 64 players and a variety of maps!
