Battlefield Bad Company 2

DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 3 will not have Windows XP support. The upcoming Battlefield 3 will likely be one of the most popular PC shooters when it launches, presumably in 2012. BF3 is being made with a brand new FROSTBITE 2 engine which is optimized for DirectX11. All those fancy words mean gamers still rocking Windows XP won't get to play.

DICE's rendering architect, Johan Andersson, confirmed via twitter the new engine wouldn't support the 10-year-old OS.

"Frostbite 2 is primarily developed for DX11. XP & DX9 is _not_ supported, 64-bit OS is recommended. Lots of time to upgrade if you haven't!"

Battlefield 3 does not have a release date yet. If you're still playing on Windows XP will you upgrade for BF3
