Battlefield 1943: Q&A with producer

EA today announced a July 8th (XBLA) and 9th (PSN) release date for Battlefield 1943, and quite fittingly we also received a Q&A from the XCN. The producer, Gordon Van Dyke, took time to answer a bunch of questions; he said no plans for DLC are made, but he thinks every 1942 map is fitting for remaking. I couldn't agree more, let's do it EA - I want my Omaha Beach!

I didn't add it in the news since I'm not 100% sure, but I think DICE said it only took a couple of hours for one guy to remake Coral Sea. That's promising for upcoming maps!

So, it's 4 maps total? that's really low and if it would only take a few hours sheesh... but I guess map packs for other FPS cost about. I like how in the interview they can't say they are setting a new standard on psn, BECAUSE THEY KNOW, WARHAWK>ALL!!!

uhhumm, well my 320gb hdd is ready when they ar..

Probably just because it's a dogfight-only map. There's gotta be far less work to do when you're in the air 99.9% of the time.
