Inbefore ME:C style open world thing that lags on everybody's computer with parkour things 'n stuff.
(Yes ME:C was a beta but still kind of worrisome it doesn't seem to run too good even on stripped textures and level)

Hope it doesn't come too soon tho :v. 1) I won't have time to do new pages during upcoming months and 2) let them tidy it before release so we could have smooth gameplay like with Battlefront right from the start.

Did anybody say jetpacks?

Not even semi-jetpacks/jumppacks that allow higher jumps and/or wallrunning? :(

A gazillion games did that already. And literally all of them turned out horribly

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

Meanwhile at DICE-headquarters during BF4's release:

I'm pretty sure there's a massive post-it on every desk "DON'T FUCKING TOUCH ANYTHING THAT IS ACTUALLY DOING WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DOING"

"Hey guys remember how stupid prenerf mav was?"

"Lets add c4 to it."

Previously, at DICE HQ:
"Ok guys, the password is "epic dream worlds"; everyone take a letter and do your best to turn it into into something random that we can put into a picture!"

I assume a functional game (BF4) also.

I don't know anything about the game.

no, thank you very much. Im pretty over the whole jetpack thing, and i never even played any of the "futuristic" shoots that encorporate that mechanic. Just watching gameplay of it is disorientating.

A little bird whispered in my ear it's going to be BF2143, with a later on to be announced huge DLC called BF1944, turning it into a split-timeline Battlefield game. To make up for the cancellation of BF1943 for the PC and X360, something like that will be used as a commercial PR BS-excuse. Active support will last for 3 years, it will know a little more DLC than BF4; EA will be playing on safe with consumer demand. Something like that.

WinWin situation.

I'd take either a continuation of BF4's setting, possibly in the 2030's (BF4 is set in 2020), or BF 2143. I think those settings will allow for the amount of flexibility that players want from a game. I don't want a WW1 setting because then the game would be too limited in my opinion. There would be few customization options, and gamers these days (including me) demand customization. I like unlocking new attachments and weapons, and there are few attachments available in a WW1 setting. I find WW1 to be interesting historically, but from a grand strategy / political viewpoint rather than the tactical combat perspective. I'm not even that enthused about a WW2 setting; there would be more flexibility (especially considering that modern combined arms tactics really came into being during that war), but I just don't find that setting interesting. So my hopes are for modern day, near future, or future.

However, I still want the game to have similar mechanics to current and past BF titles, so I'm not that interested in jetpacks and such. Mech suits are fine, as long as they stay on the ground for the most part, like in BF 2142. I'm a fan of Titanfall, but Titanfall is Titanfall; Battlefield should be Battlefield.

I think near future (~2040) is the most likely. That or the cold war/vietnam era. Simply because before that there is little to build a game fulfilling todays demands of, and I think a 2143 would kinda compete with titanfall. Might be wrong though, I am no marketing expert.

Side note, everywhere is filled with people saying "I hope the next bf is not futuristic because that would be shit", but no one saying "Futuristic is shit because ..."

I kinda get it though, because I don't want a (far) future game myself. Watched some 2142 gameplay, and I don't feel any urge at all to try something like it. I like Halo, that is very futuristic, but Battlefield? I think a future setting is just less immersive in a game like that.

Would be excited for a 1960s+ game though. Vietnam-y alternate reality warfare could be cool, as long as it has helicopters.

Would love jetpacks. They'd make the game more fast-paced and mobility-focused than it is now. Definitely would increase the skill ceiling.

"you obviously don't know what an argument is as there is only one person battling. Do you really fucking think I want subs? You think you can act all big and powerful just because you sit on a computer at least 6 hours a day like the probably nerdy unwanted retard you are with 4.3k subs? You think 4.3k subs is a lot? LOL you need medicine man. I don't want any subs as i just have a google account for other media and writing comments. Think twice before you act. You even said in your video you aren't that great of a player, and the comments agree you aren't. Maybe you should once again think twice before you act, stop being such an annoying, ignorant bastard that everyone wants to shut up, and god, literally, just shut up. Your voice gave me a headache :s"

"As a youtuber shouldn't be trying to be reeling in your viewers with exciting stuff being said not your boring ass commentary for your video"

"The more you watch his vid the dumber he gets I swear he's borderline autistic look I got shot behind cover beacuase thin sheets metal are unpenetrable. Bf4 is just as quiet and tactical as bf3 random explosion in the background . Player has dissconected from chat
You started playing bf3 and never touched bfc1/2. Please do yourself a favor and shutdown your generic cod channel down"

"Nice clickb8 Faggot w8ting for your shit tier video to disable comments . Fucking newfag cancer go play some cod you activisiom cock faggot"

"I don't see why he [MarbleDuck] always tries to shit on levelcap he is better and has a million more subs...and also "there isnt a best gun in she game there are guns that are better that others at different engagement distances" yes thats true and whichever is the best/most average at all of them is the "best gun""

"Marbleduck you don't know shit lol levelcap knows more than you do you cant talk about how someone puts up garbage when you do yourself your a newcomer to YouTube acting like you know shit step up in the food chain first then you have the right to talk otherwise your just a fish trying to compete with sharks"

"Why don't we just witness "LevelCap vs MarbleDuck" One on One both on Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 seen as there is so much Controversy about the Two Youtubers"

"stfu cunt, BF3 was way better end of discussion"

"Stfu man, you're be littleing the most looked upon Battlefield Youtuber. No one cares about you, how much of an ego you have, or quite frankly your opinion. It's a fucking game.... Does it really fucking matter? Pathetic man."

"fuck you asshole, dont talk shit about total"

"Wtf is your problem? You have no subs and he has millions, yet you pick on him like some kind of stubborn, ignorant, rude child born with a silver spoon is his mouth. It's easy to do that, for example... You said there was no background noise yet there is. You say you're a fairly good player, you're not."

Dunno about "finally" getting 64v64, considering how BF4 had 'netcode' problems for quite a while. But yeah, that'd be an interesting new feature :D

And also should avoid doing meat grinder modes, like BFH's hotwire. Not very bueno when big portion of player base just grinds those certain maps/modes, reducing number of players for other options.
