The developers behind Battlefield: Bad Company 2 have pledged that they will never charge for downloadable map packs. This comes after the controversial release of the Modern Warfare 2 “Stimulus Package” that came with a pricetag of $15.
It is another swipe in what is becoming a fairly vicious battle between the two games, even though those behind Modern Warfare have been fairly passive in the whole proceedings.
Speaking to Xbox World 360 Magazine DICE senior producer Patrick Bach said:
“We don’t ever want to charge for our maps and insisted to EA that this attitude was crucial when it came to keeping our community happy and playing together.
We’re owned by EA but we’re still very much DICE.”
