Battlefield Hardline has no impact on Battlefield 4's development, says DICE
The unveiling of Battlefield Hardline, the next entry in EA's first-person shooter series, doesn't mean that the company is finished with Battlefield 4, according to a post on the Battlefield Blog from DICE vice president Karl Magnus Troedsson.
Visceral Games — the studio behind the Dead Space series and the unannounced Star Wars project being written by former Uncharted lead Amy Hennig — has been working on Hardline already for several years, according to Troedsson. He promised that while Visceral is working on Hardline, DICE is still heads-down refining the Battlefield 4 experience; the existence of the former will not affect the latter.
"I want to be sure you all understand that introducing Hardline in no way means we’re done working on Battlefield 4," Troedsson said. "Nothing could be further from the truth. The Visceral team is leading the development of Hardline, while the DICE team continues to drive Battlefield 4. We are committed to giving you the best Battlefield 4 experience possible."
