DICE have revealed that the single player campaign of Battlefield 3 will be slightly longer than that of Modern Warfare 2, which clocks in at about six hours, give or take.
"I can't actually tell you right now, but I would say it's a pretty decent length," lead designer David Goldfarb told VG247 when asked about the length of the story. "It's not Skyrim, but it's not three hours, or anything like that. I'm not sure, as we're still working on the difficulty balancing, and that seems to make the pendulum swing quite a bit.
"I'd say it was probably slightly more than that," he added when asked to compare Battlefield 3 with Modern Warfare 2. "Based on our play-times it's probably more than that, but it's not twice as long. But, again, we'll see. When you play it on hard difficulty, it'll take a lot more time.
"It's all about making sure the experience is as awesome as possible. I'd rather have six hours of awesome than 12 hours of 'meh.'"
