They haven't even released Hardline yet and now they're telling us when Bf5 is coming...

 

I give up. If anyone needs me I'll be smacking my head against the wall.

Wait, Hardline isn't out yet? I thought I saw videos for that months ago. I almost went looking for it on Origin a while back when I wanted some FPS action.

I think they know and we know no one cares about Battlefield Hardline.

The creeping annualization of Battlefield makes me very very sad... At least if they changed the theme, weapons and scenarios like they used to do I'd be willing to try it. Getting this at a discount eventually, never buying hardline the beta was depressing and it should be an expansion.

As long as its not a copy of the last 2 games im excited. BF4 is a good game, but honestly was way too similar and soon after to bf3.

They weren't exactly a whole lot better back then.

 

At least I didn't feel like I was being ripped off as bad back in the day. They actually put out some quality games back then as well.

EA has had talented developers and good studios throughout all of it's history but it never wanted quality. Excruciating deadlines and getting the most potential out of a game was always the party line. And that philosophy killed Origin, Westwood, Bullfrog, Maxis, EALA and others. Still there's some good or even great games from time to time. I'm buying Battlefront but Hardline is a tragedy and well BF5 will have to be fucking fantastic.

This article is quite enlightening on early EA practices.

They announce a game when friggen Hardline isn't completely finished, what the hell is wrong with you EA? You know you're gonna run out of ideas and themes soon, right?

It's turning into COD, not in a gameplay sense but in the lets bring out a new game every year just to make money sense.

I started worrying from the very beginning when they released BF4 with it's first expansion. I'm sure BF3 was stand alone for quite a while before they introduced the premium pack and individual expansions. Which is probably what kept it going for years.

 

I'm just getting back into BF4 so I won't be getting Hardline but I hope the number of players will not drop too much that I can't get a balanced game because a lot of people feel the need to play the most recent release.

I think EA looked at how well Activision's business model for CoD is going, and they saw the money.

How buggy do you think the game will be at launch? I refer to Hardline and BF5 of course.

Battlefield has followed the same annual cash-grab format as COD for years, even before that EA were doing the exact same thing with the Medal of Honor franchise.  EA and Activation have been constantly copycatting of each other.

 

Medal of Honor started with WW2.

COD followed suit.....

Then along came Battlefield......

Then COD went modern......

As did EA.....

Now COD's gone "Advanced"......

So what is Battlefield 5 going to be like?

 

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it had jetpacks and a Dinklebot!

At least they are giving themselves 2 years? It could be worse, after all, companies like activision are trodding out games every year, although at least they have now begun cycling through developers.

Have you know that most EA's revenue came from EA's Sports?
