Battlefield 4 had major issues at launch in 2013, but you shouldn’t expect the next installment in the series–2015’s Battlefield Hardline–to run into the same problems. In a new interview, Hardline creative director Ian Milham of Visceral Games laid out the reasons why the game “will work” at launch come early next year.
“What you’re basically asking is, ‘Is your game going to work?’ and the answer is yes, it’s gonna work,” Milham told GameRevolution. “We actually started on this more than a year before Battlefield 4 came out. We’ve been working with the DICE guys for a long time; some of our engineering work is actually in Battlefield 4 and things they’ve been doing since then.”
“It’s in pretty great shape now and all that work is gonna come into what we’re doing,” he added. “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.”
