  • Reality Studios Acquisitioned by EA

    # A few select members of Reality Studios will be working directly with Digital Illusions CE on the upcoming game, Battlefield 3. Among the various tasks these people will be working on is implementation 128 player support on PC, as well as modification tools and scripts. Although previously announced that Battlefield 3 will be limited to 64 players on PC, and modification tools were unlikely, while true when announced, this acquisition has given DICE the opportunity to explore and develop these areas of the game before BF3 ships.


    # Unfortunately, Project Reality: ARMA 2 is now cancelled. The work already done on what was a promising modification will instead be used as an internal testing tool for features in Battlefield 3 and Project Reality 2. We would like to thank Bohemia Interactive for their excellent support, and implementation of requested features. Although we will now not be using these added features, we hope that other modifications can benefit instead.

          Then again, last year they announced PR: Vietnam, and that's actually real.

                See, this is nothing new for those of us who have been around the PR community for years. They always do this kind of thing a day early.

                    They released the Vietnam video and said it wasn't a joke... I mean, they had a video!

                      What a great run PR. I wonder if I can sell ARMA II on ebay before everyone finds out. BF3 can't come fast enough.

                        Technically it is not a day early, as Ancientman lives in Australia, where Today (March 31, 2011) is actually tomorrow (April 1, 2011). Still, cool idea while it lasted. Would have been sad to lose PR: Vietnam, not to mention 128 player support for BF2: PR, but the idea of having EA's support behind PR2, and having PR Dev's working on BF3. Awesomeness!

                            Is it safe to guess that PR Arma will be released this weekend or next?

                            Now if Black Sand Studios was used in the header I could see that throwing off a bunch of us.

                            EA and Dice seem to be implementing very similar themes in BF3 which are found in PR, I do hope the the guys at DICE talked with some of the heads at BSS and Realitymod.

                              lol, I was thinking WTF!!!!!!!!!!

                              But then I read about them advising with the BF3 dev team and thought, hmmm "Maybe BF3 will be worth buying...".

                              Good April fools joke. Had me going there.
