EA promises that Battlefield Hardline 'will work' at launch
Electronic Arts' Battlefield series has a long, sorry history of games being barely playable at launch due to severe problems such as bugs and network issues. But the company is vowing that the next entry in the franchise, Battlefield Hardline, won't suffer the same fate.
"What you're basically asking is, 'Is you're game going to work?' and the answer is yes, it's gonna work," said Ian Milham, creative director on Battlefield Hardline, in an interview with Game Revolution during the 2014 Tokyo Game Show.
"Battlefield 4 is in pretty great shape now and all that work is gonna come into what we're doing," said Milham.
"We already had one very successful beta, we're going to have another beta on every platform we ship on. We take shipping a working game pretty seriously. So, yes, the game will work," said Milham.
Battlefield Hardline is set for release in early 2015.
