We did get an all too brief glimpse at the game formerly known as Bad Company 3 courtesy of EA Play. During which EA Chief Studios Officer Laura Miele promised "epic battles at a scale and fidelity unlike anything you've experienced before". But as good as it looked, it just wasn't enough to get me excited, not yet anyway. I was more excited to see that cool shot from Bad Company 2 included in the presentation. That said, Battlefield 6 (as it's currently known) could be the game that pushes me to purchase a PlayStation 5.
Despite all of the struggles DICE has gone through in their attempts to create a third Bad Company, I still live in hope that such a game will see the light of day. I appreciate that it's hard to return to a beloved series like Bad Company, and create something that's worthy of what came before. But they have already made two brilliant games, which gives me confidence that DICE will one day figure out how to continue/conclude the adventures of four bumbling yet loveable soldiers. You never know, the leaks could all be wrong, fake even, and Battlefield 6 is indeed Bad Company 3. Could that guy seen in the EA Play reveal (see above picture) be Preston Marlowe? Probably not, but DICE may surprise us. For now, I continue to live in hope.
