Now, with the release of archrival Activision's Modern Warfare 2--developed by former EA employees at Infinity Ward--looming, EA is planning a comeback in the military shooter sector. Speaking at the William Blair & Company investor conference this week, EA COO John Pleasants revealed that, in addition to this year's sequel to the critically lauded, multiplatinum Battlefield: Bad Company, EA is planning a new installment in its core Battlefield franchise.

"We have a lot of IP in that [shooter] area, and we have not not noticed that Call of Duty has a significant share of that business," Pleasants told analysts during a question-and-answer session. "We are putting a real concentrated effort behind those titles. Battlefield happens to be one of them…I've had the luxury of looking at Battlefield 3 over at DICE over in Sweden. I was highly impressed by the way the people were working on that product. That's not for this fiscal year [ending March 31, 2010], but that is a product that is looking very good."

After saying that the download-only Battlefield 1943 has been "selling well," he said the Battlefield franchise is "strengthening and moving to a service model, and it has multiple titles within it which we can lever off of, so I am bullish on the Battlefield franchise, but it's not our only title which we are hoping to gain share with in the shooter category." He offered the forthcoming third-person shooter Army of Two: The 40th Day as another title that would court shooter fans.

He's not talking about BC2, BC2 comes out this year whereas he was very clear that BF3 isn't.

I thought BC2 couldn't make it this year, thus it'd be out next year, 2010, which technically is still the winter leftover from 2009.

Now this is all very confusing . . .

I would like to see all of the stuff they took out of Bf2 before release, as well as the ability to choose between heavy armor/light armor/no armor.

Definitely Modern era would be best. I just couldn't get into 2142 because it was set in the future, but some aspects were good.

It better fucking be modern day. Like actually modern day. Not where everyone is just using M4's and Mp7's. I want something like PoE except even more modern. At the very least: Mobile artillery, mortars maybe, new vehicles, a way larger assortment of weapons/items-something like 2142 would be great- and just up-to-date everything. Not up-to-date as in 5+ years ago. Maybe they should start watching futureweapons, some of the older episodes that has things that have been deployed.

Some of these would just be

The osprey (helicopter plane) would be fantastic. It's modern day, been deployed, has a modern day 2142 feel (attack ship).

I think it would be cool to be able to unlock optics for guns or something instead of just unlocking new guns. M16 in Bf2 would have been really quite good with like ACOG or something for longer range shots.

Hopefully this is true, it will be epic.

Gamestop says the pre-order for BC2 ships Dec 31st 09.

I think DICE's taking on too many projects at once tbh. Unless they've done some serious hiring, they've thinned out their battlefield programmers between 1943, BC2 and now BF3. I hope they don't fuck it up

They tested and learned a looot of good stuff from 2142 so I'm quite certain that BF3 will be the FPS that will rule all!

If BFBC is anything to go by it doesn't have nearly as many bugs as the BF2 engine, plus it takes advantage of newer technologies like DX10 and multi core.

As long as it takes place in modern times like BF2, and improves on some stuff, I'm looking forward to it.

Is that a carrier beaching in the background?  *flashbacks to 1942*

I hope BF3 is friendlier towards custom maps than BF2 was.
