Battlefield 4 will retain its present timeline setting, according to DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson at GDC Europe. On maintaining the same timeframe as its predecessor, Troedsson remarked that "we still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series." He cites several factors in deciding to go for a direct sequel instead of returning to Bad Company: "There's a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on. Everything from fans' feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves." The upcoming Battlefield sequel was given a lackluster July reveal, with a beta incoming sometime in 2013. Fortunately for fans of Bad Company, Troedsson wasn't closing the door on a sequel, too. "That doesn't mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future," he said.
