Considering that DICE haven't had the best record for releasing polished, bug-free products, the news that the developers are considering releasing future games through an early access model isn't that surprising.
Although he's not confirming anything just yet, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson has revealed that the studio are considering their options. “We have nothing to announce, but we are having discussions when it comes to (early access),” he said in an interview .
“It comes not from a business perspective, but more from a perspective of if it would help us have a stable launch of the game,” Troedsson said. Strange hearing such a high-profile developer basically admit that they've failed in that respect before. Last year's Battlefield 4 launch was not the smoothest event, and the military shooter has continued to be plagued with a variety of issues since then.
“We probably wouldn’t open the floodgates for everyone, but we might do it for geographical territories or people who bought the last game,”
