You know, if you're currently standing in line outside your local GameStop that will be celebrating the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 with midnight festivities, you should realize that another top-notch FPS will drop next year.
And if EA CEO John Riccitiello's prediction comes true, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 could rival Infinity Ward's massively anticipated shooter. The original Battlefield was a solid and nicely accomplished FPS and developer DICE has already said to expect a bigger and better sequel. Although the entire world seems to be MW2-crazy right now, EA wants to remind everyone that somewhere, lurking in the background shadows, they've got a project that might just surprise you with its bad-ass-ness. According to PS3Center citing a Q2 conference call with Riccitiello, the EA boss said- "I think [ Bad Company 2 ] has every right to see itself as a rival to the number one FPS game that one of one of our competitors is releasing next week." Ironically, there was a time back in 2007 when PS3 owners were really down on EA (for a variety of reasons) but now, Activision is in the doghouse and EA has really produced some stellar titles this generation.
In addition to Battlefield: Bad Company , we've also seen Mirror's Edge and Dead Space , so we have every confidence that BC2 is gonna be awesome. Also, let's not forget that the beta kicks off on November 19 and that test will be exclusive to the PS3. Betcha don't hate EA much now , do ya?
