  • 2142(3)

    Just curious, with BF3 right around the corner, is anyone hearing any rumors about an updated version of 2142 being in the works or at least being discussed?

    Given the popularity of 2142, DICE would be a fool for not attempting a new version.

    BF3 is the new BF2.. 2142 came after BF2, so maybe it's next?

      hmmm I haven't heard anything but I highly doubt it. Since 2142 was not a stand alone game but rather another installment in the true BF series.

        even if they are working on it (which I doubt) they would never release any news about, right now they are into full hype mode for BF3 and they wouldn't want any distractions. (Hence why even though they were working on BF3 they didn't release any info until BC2, MoH and BC2:Vietnam came out) They only want you fixated on one game at a time.

        I think eventually we will probably get a 2142ish new game from DICE but I think it will be 2 or 3 years off at the minimum.

          Did you mean to have that the other way around?

          Personally I'd love to see another futuristic battlefield, but I can't see the need if BF3 is up to scratch for a good long while.

            2142 was built on the same engine as BF2, AFAIK. I'm sure DICE will consider another BF title on Frostbite 2.0 after they're well off with BF3.

              I would hope so given the popularity of the 2142 title - I would argue that it extended BF2s useful life by a couple of years and made Dice a nice return on investment.

              Besides, how awesome would destructive environments be on a Titan?

                I would be for a more 'realistic' and gritty 2142 game with space marines and combat.

                  Keep in mind it would need to be 2146 not 3, as NS takes place in 2145. Maybe they could go with 2142.0. With the engine being called Frostbite, it's fate that they continue on with some 22nd century frozen action.

                    I fully expect them to hop on that bandwagon after the new futuristic CoD comes out and establishes a popular base for the genre, which they'll then try and get a piece of.

                      I say screw BF3, 2142 is, and will always be the best BF title ever released in my book...in fact I'd be happy if they took 2142 as it is and simply update the engine, add a few maps, and fixed the crash bugs. Its awfully close to perfect already. :)

                          I'm hoping this statement doesn't turn out to be true in my book. I'd like BF3 to knock 2142 out of the #1 MPFPS spot on my list.
