DICE says Battlefield 3 on PC won’t be a sloppy port

In recent times, PC gamers have become increasingly fearful of developers not putting in that extra effort and optimization for PC versions of multiplatform games. This is especially true of the Battlefield franchise, which has become quite successful in the console market.

One of the developers at DICE posted a lengthy, revealing response on the EA forums, saying: “It’s too early to talk BF3 specifics. But it’s never too early for me to acknowledge that PC players have a fear that BF3 will be ‘consolized.’ PC gaming is alive and well, BFBC2 has proven that and no one at DICE or EA can argue with the numbers.”

Battlefield 3 needs an extra bit of special attention on the PC. I intend to give it that attention, tradition and our community demand it.” The full post is worth reading for the behind-the-scenes talk, so check it out here.
