Earlier this morning, we posted a news story about EA having some big plans for taking on the dominance of sci-fi series Halo and Gears of War with a new title Respawn Entertainment is working on. Perhaps more interestingly, the same article from Gamepro also makes mention of EA’s plans to alternate new Medal of Honor and Battlefield releases every year.

While Medal of Honor still has a way to go to earn back its street cred (check out our less-than-sparkling review here), the Battlefield franchise is directly competing with Activision’s Call of Duty juggernaut. And what seems to be one of the most important factors in why Battlefield 3 is generating more buzz than Modern Warfare 3, is that it’s not restricted to a two-year development cycle. Although the Frostbite 2-powered Battlefield 3 is looking amazing, I’m wondering whether this more stringent ‘quantity over quality’ approach will negatively affect the reputation of future Battlefield titles.

Well it'd be OK as long as they deliver a quality product and don't remove features from the wish list because they want the game to 'die' after 2 years.

2 years isn't exactly a short amount of time now that they have their tech sorted out.

Proofing and early-morning wake-ups rarely go hand in hand. Corrected.

Yeah, don't really see a problem there. And especially if they are including dedicated servers, you can easily go back and enjoy older games, unlike COD, where no one barely plays MW2, and when MW3 comes out, everyone will kill off their "servers" that they are renting in Black Ops. A 2 year cycle is fine, gives everyone a heap of enjoyment. It's when it becomes every 6-12 months a new release is being made, then there are problems.
