Hey, PC users. Sorry if you thought Battlefield 1943 would be out on PC sometime in 2009. Really sorry. Because it won't be.

Instead, the game has been delayed into 2010, DICE's Gordon Van Dyke telling G4TV:

    We haven't released a Frostbite [DICE's game engine] built game on PC, so going into this project we lacked a starting foundation we had on Console. There are also many different and unique only challenges to the PC that has lead to us pushing the release even further to Q1 CY 2010 [early next year]. This was a hard pill to swallow, but it was absolutely needed to ensure the features and functionality that PC Players have come to expect from Battlefield on PC are not missing. Things like support for DirectX 9 and 10, higher player count (up to 32-player matches), wide peripheral support i.e. Joysticks for flying, VoIP, and ranked server provider hosting. So it was and still is the absolutely right decision, for quality sake, to not release until it is ready.

Sad reading that a console game is having trouble being ported to the PC, but everything he says makes sense. Better to wait and have them do it right than have them do it...not right.

Well, that sucks...I guess the Frostbite engine needs more tweaking for the PC?

i'm sure you're right on.  bf2 was great, but whatever dethrones it as the next blockbuster will not come from dice.

I'll get it, I loved 1942.  I think this is also so people who dont want to wait (like me) will get it for the 360 or PS3 and then get it on PC when it comes out

I heard that 1943 is just a dumbed down consolefag version of 1942.

Great, nothing like having 3 battlefield titles releasing at once.

I don't like playing multiple games at once.

Considering IW's recent failure, I'm all for giving DICE time to give us PC gaming instead of some lame excuse of a replacement.

The latest info on a PC release date:  http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/batt … st12011853

Via Twitter:

Fan:  "is there any chance we get the 1943 PC version before BC2?"
BF1943 Producer at DICE:  "Not likely. They would be so close then it would be quite pointless. But I hope we can offer both bundle and each game separately."

higher player count (up to 32-player matches)
Just me, or does 32 seem like such a small number after BF2 and its 64?

It does. 32 players is pretty much the absolute minimum in BF2 IMO. 48 players seems to be the golden number.

I'm still holding my breath for BF3. I have yet to see a better game than BF2 for its time even with all the issues its had over the years.

Jesus, I thought it was coming out along side Bad Company 2. What could they be doing that is making it take a whole extra year compared to its console counterpart?

If theyre actually making it better then they can take all the time they want, I'm in no rush to get this.
