The Battlefield series has gained the reputation of its titles being full of issues and barely playable at launch, with Battlefield 4 being a fine example of that. With the release of Battlefield Hardline still quite a few months away, Electronic Arts has promised that the game will work perfectly and without any issues at launch.
"What you're basically asking is, 'Is you're game [sic] going to work?' and the answer is yes, it's gonna work," said Ian Milham, Battlefield Hardline's creative director. "We actually started on this more than a year before Battlefield 4 came out. We've been working with the DICE guys for a long time; some of our engineering work is actually in Battlefield 4 and things they've been doing since then. It's in pretty great shape now and all that work is gonna come into what we're doing.
We already had one very successful beta, we're going to have another beta on every platform we ship on. We take shipping a working game pretty seriously. So, yes, the game will work."
Battlefield Hardline will be available on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC in early 2015.
