Battlefield 4 will be set in modern times, according to DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson.

“There’s a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on. Everything from fans’ feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves. It’s not just one single thing,” said Troedsson at GDC Europe earlier today.

“And, yes, I know Battlefield 4 is probably the most creative name we ever could come up with. I can’t comment any more on that games because it’s all secret.”

“We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful.”

To conclude, Troedsson hinted there might be a Bad Company 2 sequel somewhere down the line, “That doesn’t mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future.”
