EA: Battlefield 3 'Looking Very Good'

Electronic Arts today confirmed that DICE is hard at work on a full sequel to its Battlefield franchise.

During the William Blair Growth Stock Conference, EA chief operating officer John Pleasants mentioned that he had personally seen the game during a trip to the Swedish developer's headquarters.

"I've had the luxury of looking at Battlefield 3 over at DICE in Sweden and was highly impressed by the way the team is working on that product," said Pleasants, according to G4. "Of course, that's not [coming out] in the fiscal year, but that is a product that is looking very good."

Pleasants also confirmed rumors that Burnout Paradise developer Criterion Games has been tasked with designing a new Need for Speed title.
