Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Bad Company 2 Interview, Gordon Van Dyke, Producer

With the Bad Company 2 beta dropping on the PS3 recently, we wanted to give something back to those who won't have the chance to get in on it because they simply don't own a PS3.

In London a few weeks back we chatted with Battlefield: Bad Company 2's Producer, Gordon Van Dyke, and talked about a ton of things to do with the game; including the destruction model, vehicles, the single player campaign and whether it's retained its humour, and of course, multiplayer. We briefly touch on the two unannounced multiplayer modes as well... not specifics, but Van Dyke seems to think they will have a massive impact on things. Intriguing!

Bad Company 2 is out March 2nd in North America and March 5th in Europe.

I've always wondered why other games don't start using dedicated servers. Throughout all of my games on BF I've never had problems with lag. Which I can't say for other games where, sometimes the people who lag get a huge advantage like in Halo.

Dedicated servers cost money, money most publishers don't want to spend. With most games it's not that bad, I'm guessing because of how active the BF online is that people's connections just wouldn't be able to handle it well so there's no choice.

I may be completely wrong... :P

Slayer / deathmatch is a mindless game type- keep it out of Badcompany2 please.

Wouldn't be a deal killer for me, I just wouldn't play that game type but that's not what Battlefield games are about,no mindless shooting. While it might attract a larger fan base, those gamers that just want a gun and someone to shoot at, we dont need another FPS with little thinking involved. I like teamwork.

@2 In Halo 3, many times when people get an advantage because of lag, they're hacking. It's called standbying.

@3 That doesn't make much sense, because games like Halo 2, 3, COD4, and Modern Warfare 2 have had much more people play upon release and their servers were able to handle it.

@#2: The problem is that dedicated servers leave the life of the game up to the publisher. EA forces you to buy their latest iteration because you can't play the previous version after they shut down the server (see what happened to BF2:MC a while after BF:BC came out).
Also, if there are server problems you are out of luck with playing the game. (see the debacle that was the BF1943 launch).
