They "plan to take care" of Bad Company 2 for a real long time. Singleplayer missions "a much bigger thing" than new multiplayer maps.
"We haven't planned any DLC that comes with the actual story itself, but we won't rule it out," Troedsson told in an interview.
"The good thing about having a post-launch campaign that we have -- that we plan to take care of the product for a long time -- is that we can be reactive to what people think. But obviously, creating single-player missions is a much bigger thing than creating additional multiplayer maps." DLC isn't exactly the big priority right now for the studio.
They're still fixing issues with the game itself, namely the server troubles that PC gamers have been experiencing. Still there's some free multiplayer content arriving March 30th consisting of two new maps - Arica Harbor and Laguna Presa. Why free?
"One of the very clear lessons that we learned from that is that the more booster packs people have to pay for, all you do is actually segment the community," he said.
"Team play is very important for us... this is something that we felt that it is probably better to give away a lot of the maps for free, and then perhaps we can have some more paid DLC in the future that is not focusing on that." Free maps from DICE? Sounds great.
