DICE producer Patrick Liu wants to reassure fans that the company is not going casual. The Battlefield and Mirror’s Edge developer plans to “continue to do what we are best at”.

Speaking with Videogamer.com, Liu’s comment stems from the fact free-to-play cartoon shooter Battlefield Heroes is aimed at casual PC gamers.

“We are definitely still making PC games, we’ve not forgotten about that”, he said.

“We are not going casual, just because that is the trend. We’re not good at that. It’s not our core focus for the studio.”

Hopefully the worried few will feel a bit better now.
