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.
