Writing on his blog, DICE designer Gustav Halling has seemingly confirmed Battlefield 1943 as a discless product.
“It’s a download-only game on X360, PS3 & PC,” he said in response to a question as to whether or not the title is a browser affair in the same vein as Battlefield Heroes.
His comments appear to clarify part of the game’s announcement press release last week.
“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,” said the PR.
Just going to check this for definite with EA now. Discs are so last century, anyway.

Update: Get the first 1943 movie here.
As predicted, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 1943 have both just been announced by DICE.
Battlefield 1943 is out for PC, PS3 and 360 this “summer”. Bad Company 2 will follow this “winter” for the same formats.
A multiplayer-only effort, 1943 features 24-player action over three locations; Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima. It will be seen at Comic Con this weekend, as rumoured.
Bad Company 2, as with the original, will feature a single-player component.
“Bad Company 2 takes everything that players liked in the original and ups the ante – more vehicles, more destruction and more team play,” said DICE’s Karl Magnus Troedsson.
“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.”
Press release after the break.
