Battlefield 4 will be set in modern times and not in the far future a la Battlefield 2142.
Of course, the other major question surrounding Battlefield 4 was why not release a new Bad Company after Battlefield 3?
Troedsson explained, "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. It's not just one single thing. And, yes, I know Battlefield 4 is probably the most creative name we ever could come up with. I can't comment any more on that games because it's all secret."
"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. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful," he added, before teasing, "That doesn't mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future."
Battlefield 4 is due to be released in November 2013, and players who purchase Medal of Honor: Warfighter will get to BF4.
