The Battlefield 3 presentation at EA’s E3 2011 press conference kicked off with a soldier admiring his toy dinosaur keepsake. Most of you, myself included, probably didn’t read much more into this moment than “Oh hey, look! A dinosaur!”
There’s more to it than that, though. A while back, a thread on 4chan was started by someone claiming to work for Activision. Their post asked for feedback on Modern Warfare, and the replies proceeded to talk all about the startling lack of dinosaurs in those games. Hey, it’s true!
I know what you’re thinking, and nope, this isn’t a coincidence. Check out this tweet by DICE gameplay designer Gustav Halling. Incredible.
