EA DICE officially announced today Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game is expected to be released next Winter. Also in this press release is Battlefield 1943, which will be available this Summer. Both games use the Frostbite engine.

DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio (NASDAQ:ERTS), today announced Battlefield: Bad Company 2™, the sequel to last year’s blockbuster title. In this installment, the Bad Company crew again find themselves in the heart of the action, where they must use every weapon and vehicle at their disposal to survive. The action unfolds with unprecedented intensity, introducing a level of fervor to vehicular warfare never before experienced in a modern warfare action game. To get ready for the assault this winter, players can prepare for action in Battlefield 1943™, an all-new multiplayer game available this summer via PlayStation®Store, Xbox LIVE™ Marketplace and on the PC.

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the ‘B’ company fight their way through snowy mountaintops, dense jungles and dusty villages. With a heavy arsenal of deadly weapons and a slew of vehicles to aid them, the crew set off on their mission and they are ready to blow up, shoot down, blast through, wipe out and utterly destroy anything that gets in their way. Total destruction is the name of the game, delivered as only the DICE next generation Frostbite™ engine can. Either online or offline, enemies will soon learn there is nowhere to hide. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be available for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and the PC.

Using the same Frostbite™ engine, Battlefield 1943 takes players back to WWII. The game offers endless hours of 24 player multiplayer action over three classic and tropic locations; Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima. Delivering the award-winning through-the-gun and vehicle warfare online experience DICE is best recognized for, Battlefield 1943 will have players battling in ruthless aerial dog fights and intense trench combat. Players can see the game in action at New York Comic Con (Booth #1441) from February 6th-8th.

“Bad Company 2 takes everything that players liked in the original and ups the ante – more vehicles, more destruction and more team play,” said Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer Battlefield Franchise, DICE. “Battlefield 1943 is a new take on a blast from the past classic coming to life with brand new technology that we’re eager to get into players hands.”

I'm excited about 1943, but 24 players max? I don't care about the limited maps, it sounds like a budget title, but the main staple of the BF series was huge maps with lots of players =/

I'm looking forward to battlefield heroes more tbh :/

Though 1943 will probably be quite good, not a fan of modern warfare games for some reason.

well .. 24slot servers are usually my favorite ones, and 32 slot servers.
I wish they'd redo 2142 though ... that game is just awesome.

I reloaded it up the other day, you can still find a decent game. It was hard finding servers because mods / servers running different patches aren't filtered out, though.

Unlimited ammo, regenerative health, 24 players, three classes, three maps, and you can only play as either the Japanese or United States.

I'll pass.

You would think they'd have demo'd this on PC rather than console

EA making a game called Bad Company is comedy gold if you ask me.
