Battlefield 1943, Bad Company 2: Onslaught Canceled For PC

Battlefield 1943 for PC has been canceled, as has the PC version of Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s co-op DLC, Onslaught, developer DICE announced today.

“In my day to day work,” DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson posted on the official Battlefield blog today, “I look at our release schedule and the studio’s capacity, weighing them against our wild ambitions to create awesomeness. I often need to make hard calls regarding where we put the studio’s focus…This is one of those cross roads where I need to make a hard decision."

Troedson goes on to say that the team continues to focus on supporting Bad Company 2 and previous titles, and is determined to build “the best Battlefield game ever” in Battlefield 3. Understandably, the developers had to free up some hands to do this, and, hopefully, “this will leads to an even better experience in Battlefield 3, not only on PC, but on all platforms.”

Considering we hadn’t heard anything substantial about the PC version of Battlefield 1943 for over a year, this news isn’t terribly surprising. Plus, I’m guessing that PC gamers would prefer DICE focus all of its attention on B3 instead of juggling multiple Battlefield-related projects at once. Guess we’ll find out if it was worth the tough decision when Battlefield 3 is officially unveiled at GDC 2011 later this month.
