DICE Officially Cans PC Versions of Battlefield 1943, Bad Company 2: Onslaught

battlefield 1943 bad company 2 onslaught pc cancelled

It is with a heavy heart that I type this news, PC faithful, because DICE, the developers behind the Battlefield and Mirror’s Edge series, has officially announced that they are cancelling both the PC port of Battlefield 1943 and the co-operative Onslaught Mode for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

In a recent post on the Battlefield Blog, DICE General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson came out in a very frank way and told the community that these two eagerly awaited games would have to be discontinued to make way for Battlefield 3.

We know some of you eagerly have been awaiting Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught on PC. I’m sad to say that these two titles are now officially cancelled. Instead, our talented teams will focus on delivering the greatest possible gaming experience in our next behemoth release. We’re confident this will lead to an even better experience in Battlefield 3, not only on PC, but on all platforms.

While this is hardly a surprise, given that I originally posted about Battlefield 1943 on PC facing a delay over a year ago, it’s still very much a let down. I did play and enjoy both 1943 and Bad Company 2: Onslaught on the Xbox 360, but the PC is my preferred platform for Battlefield.

So, PC gamers of this site, any thoughts on the unfortunate cancellation of 1943 and Onslaught? Do you feel slighted by DICE? Are you still looking forward to Battlefield 3 (which is running on the Frostbite 2 engine)? Go!

  1. DAMN YOU DICE! I wanted to fly a WWII Hell Cat with my Logitec Sidewinder, not some crappy Playstation/Xbox Joystick. And how hard would it seriously be to add Onslaught to PC? It aint like CoD MoW2 where dedicated servers didn’t exist.
    Dice, I am disappoint.

  2. Is that the real reason? Especially for Onslaught.
    Was EA, DICE or both reluctant to throw in the resources to the PC ports? Who knows… EA and DICE that’s who! CONSPIRACY!!!!!!!

  3. Very disappointed with this, I’ve played both on the 360 as well and was looking forward to getting in on this with my pc friends. Oh well Battlefield 3 better be worth it.

  4. Ah man, another developer ignoring their PC base. It’s weird to see this, especially since Battlefield’s home is the PC. More and more, developers are focusing too much on the console, and the not PC, and only few companies like Blizzard, Valve, Bioware, are the people who keep PC gaming alive. While their excuse is “we are just focusing on Battlefield 3”, honestly if more effort was made when those games/updates were released, there wouldn’t be this problem.
