While Call of Duty is headed to the future with Black Ops 2, DICE is quite content in the present time.

Speaking at GDC Europe, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson informed fans that Battlefield 4 will stay in the modern day setting and time period.

"There's a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on. Everything from fans' feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves. It's not just one single thing," said Troedsson.

"And, yes, I know Battlefield 4 is probably the most creative name we ever could come up with. I can't comment any more on that games because it's all secret."

"We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is," he added. "We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful."

Troedsson concluded by hinting there could be a Bad Company 2 sequel somewhere down the line.

"That doesn't mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future," he left off.

Battlefield 4, which was revealed last month, has a beta planned for fall 2013. Exclusive access will be granted to anyone who pre-orders Medal of Honor: Warfighter Limited Edition. DICE has since confirmed there will be other ways to gain access to the demo, but at this time Warfighteris the only way to "guarantee entry".
