At first glance, you might think the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PC beta’s last-minute leap into early 2010 is just another example of PC gamers getting the shaft. After all, PS3 owners are taking the beta for a spin right now, so what’s the hold up on PC? Well, as it turns out, DICE is merely saving the best for last.
“With the huge success of the PS3 Beta we decided to drastically increase the PC Beta's capacity to insure as many people as possible could participate. Unfortunately this meant we had to delay the Beta to very early next year giving us more planning time to make it happen and implement more optimizations,” producer Gordon VanDyke wrote on the Battlefield blog.
Oh, he is so cruising for a boycot-- wait, what'd he just say?
VanDyke also emphasized that Bad Company 2’s PC iteration will come loaded with an increased multiplayer count, dedicated server support, extra graphical settings, and tons more. Basically, the whole thing’s a spicy love letter to PC gamers, peppered with all the fixings we like best. Is this what it feels like to be… acknowledged?
