DICE isn’t making any modding tools for Battlefield 3

In an interview with GameStar, Electronic Arts senior VP Patrick Söderlund revealed that there aren’t any plans to put out modding tools for Battlefield 3. Not entirely the stance I would’ve expected them to take.

The reason? “If you look at the Frostbite engine, and how complex it is, it’s going to be very difficult for people to mod the game, because of the nature of the set up of levels, of the destruction and all those things … it’s quite tricky. So we think it’s going to be too big of a challenge for people to make a mod.”

You’d be surprised by what motivated fans are capable of accomplishing. This excuse already sounds like a rather silly one; can’t wait to see how it looks in retrospect.
