Thanks to GameSpy for its interview with Electronic Arts exec Scott Evans
regarding the official announcement
of a PC sequel to the popular team-based FPS, Battlefield 1942
, hot on the heels of the recent news
of a separate PlayStation 2-based follow-up, Battlefield: Modern Combat. This title is "bringing modern-day warfare to the series as well as a completely new engine"
, and Evans notes: "Each side will bring military hardware to the battle appropriate to their nationality. For example, the Chinese forces have a really cool mix of Soviet and homebrew technology that much of the world knows nothing about."
He ends by addressing bias concerns: "It's important to remember that Battlefield is politically neutral... It's not just a game about the U.S. versus a Middle Eastern coalition."
