DICE has revealed it has some meaty plans in regards to post-launch content for its hotly-anticipated military blaster, Battlefield 3.
Quizzed by MCV as to what the company has up its sleeves in regards to DLC plans for the game, creative director Lars Gustavsson replied:
?We've completely restructured our studio around it. Nowadays, we have operations team who looks at the title when it starts getting closer to launch (or long before) with potential downloadable content and so on, to reallyhave a plan. Otherwise you're quite likely to start slipping. If you're focusing just before release on what you're going to ship post-launch, then I think you have problems.?
?So, yes there is a massive plan in place,? he confirmed.
Rival Activision shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops has been receiving a steady stream of DLC since its launch in November 2010, the most recent of which came in the shape of last month?s ?Rezurrection? Map Pack.
Furthermore, this year?s entry Modern Warfare 3 is surely to receive a similarly robust DLC line-up, so it's just as well DICE has something in the pipeline for its own FPS effort.
Battlefield 3 is due out later this month on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360.
