Battlefield 3 rumors.

Over at IGN, they are indicating that Battlefield 3 is in the works. No word on how it will go. I personally enjoyed the play balance of Battlefield 2142 more than Battlefield 2. Battlefield 2 does have more vehicles and accessories, but sometimes I feel as though some of it was gimmicky and did not qualitatively add to the experience. With fewer vehicles and unlocks, I felt the performance and play of 2142 was better. Nevertheless, 2142 was not the overwhelming commercial success that BF2 was. Notwithstanding that, 2142 also offers a unique FPS experience than a lot of other games. Almost every game is either WWII or Modern. So here's hoping that imagination and a willingness to break out of the mold continues for DICE.
