PC version of Battlefield 1943 shot down over Q1 2010

EA’s confirmed to G4′s The Feed that Battlefield 1943 for PC will not be coming until next year.

Producer Gordan Van Dyke said of the news: “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].”

“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,” he further added.

Well, if you’re a PC gamer, but have a PS3 or 360, do what you should have done by now after reading this: buy BF1943 if you cant wait that long for the PC version. £9.99 on the Playstation Store, 1200 MS points on Xbox Live Marketplace.

    I’ve played 1943 a grand total of twice on my 360. First time I never got in after multiple tries and the second I was told I could’nt join any of my friends playing even though they were spamming me with invites.

    Think Ill wait for the PC release. Actually no I think I just won’t buy it.

    And you… haven’t considered trying since? Obviously the servers were bogged down at the time.

    Who said that was at launch?

    It was about 3 weeks ago. Actually tell a lie I played it at a mates house for awhile and it was indeed Bad Company in 1943 with no medic.

    Sounds like the problem might be an issue with your own internet connection then.
