Everyone likes a good rumour, and the one about DICE doing Battlefield 2143 have been flying around the internet quicker than those bloody arrow to the knee jokes. It’s all due to just one lonely picture taken by a gamer in Battlefield 3 as he was playing the new Back to Karkand DLC pack of a crate with the simple numbers, “2143” on it. Of course gamers immediately declared that this meant a sequel to Battlefield 2142 was on the way.
But now DICE, or at least Global Community Manager Daniel Matros, have deemed it time to respond to the rumours via the black magic of Twitter. Daniel had this to say: “I will let the rumors linger a bit before making a statement. It amuses me.” Utter bastard that he is.
So there you have it. You’re just going to have to wait.
