Let’s get straight to the point. Battlefield Hardline will work on the day of release.
Why would it? Well, you saw what happened at the launch of Battlefield 4, right? That was a launch so FUBAR the game still barely worked a month after release.
But this will not be the case with Visceral’s newest entry in the series, according to creative director Ian Milham.
“What you’re basically asking is, ‘Is your game going to work?’ and the answer is yes, it’s gonna work,” he told Gamer Revolution.
“We actually started on this more than a year before Battlefield 4 came out. We’ve been working with the DICE guys for a long time; some of our engineering work is actually in Battlefield 4 and things they’ve been doing since then. It’s in pretty great shape now and all that work is gonna come into what we’re doing.
“We already had one very successful beta, we’re going to have another beta on every platform we ship on. We take shipping a working game pretty seriously. So, yes, the game will work,” he emphasised.
So now you know.
