Monday, 13th August 2012 11:00 GMT By Nick Akerman

DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson celebrated the 10-year anniversary of Battlefield at GDC Europe today.

Troedsson, who is also celebrating the 20-year anniversary of DICE, announced the series has “served” over 50 million players since its inception. He went on to reveal the developer is still “in love” with the “core franchise.”

As of last November, Battlefield 3 had shipped over 12 million copies worldwide. A Premium Edition of the game has been spotted on Amazon Canada, possibly to celebrate a decade of the franchise.

Battlefield 4 is on the way, with a 2013 release date expected.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Commander. Mod support. In-game browser. LAN support (you LAN killing ###s). Stability. In-game voip (i.e. you don’t have to add random strangers to your friends list in order to talk to your squad).
    These are the things BF3 needs.

    Instead we get endless gun-nerfing, patches that break stuff, high-price DLC that splits the community and the promise of BF4; which will almost certainly be a rinse-n-repeat, make-it-like-COD, dumbed-for-consoles, bug-fest with nothing fixed and no attention paid to the feedback of PC Gamers who’ve been loyal to the games for ten years. Thanks DICE.
