    Second gen of DX11 cards is probably about 10 months to a year away, dont think its worth the wait, especially since almost any game I have seen, DX11 cards get better fps in DX11 than they do in DX10, and sometimes even better than DX9. And they get the best FPS out of ay current videocards on DX9 and DX10, so that means it's the best bet no matter what version of DX you are running.

    Ive played BF2 and BF 1942 , but havent played them in a while, but got hardcore into it because I love all the class's and vehicles.

    Now this game is more advance, now you can destroy a wall, or even a building. This game looks badass

    BF BC 1 is awesome, I still play it like 10 hours a week, gets real competitive when someone gets your dog tags, really hoping they keep that in.

    Not sure if its been said but if you go to there site you can sign up with them to get a beta Key. Not sure if they have any left and they say its no guarantee but it doesn't hurt to try.

    I'm not sure if this was mentioned or not but is BF:BC 2 fully DX 11 compliant or is it just a feature of the engine?

    Not fully clear yet, the PC specifics are still in development

    That question and answer was straight from a Rendering Architect at DICE's twitter. BF 3 is a flat out rumor so far, so not sure how you would be even sure that game will come out, BF BC 3 and BF 3 would pretty much be the same exact game, the BC series seems to be the successor.

    Its been confimred many times.

    http://www.joystiq.com/2009/09/08/pax-2009-battlefield-1943-producer-talks-lack-of-dlc/

    http://g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/696413/electronic-arts-confirms-battlefield-3-in-development.html

    I can keep going with sources but I think you get the idea. ;)

    Also BC2 will have DX11 features. True its not 100% confirmed but Ill bet money on it.
    1Kurgan1 says thanks.

    The hardware and OS are both readily available for DX11. It doesn't make sense to have games releasing in 4 months that still dont support the new features. I can't see full 100% DX11 support being held off BC2 unless Nvidia bribes DICE into holding back because their not ready.

    Well, waiting on the 19th... File Planet gave me the numbers... But, PS3 gives me errors when I "redeem code".. So, the 19th can't get here faster!!!

    I guess I'm not saying their won't be a BF3, I mean eventually there will be, it's a popular franchise and it will move on, but that 1st source here's there qoute.

    and the 2nd source was old news, at that point from many other news sources people were wondering if BF BC 2 and BF3 were one in the same. At the time of June 10th BF BC 2 had only just been announced as being released about a week before that. So I agree there most likely will be a BF3 at sometime I suppose, but for now it seems that the BC series has taken its place, got to admit, they are in the same timeline, with the same weapons, only thing MIA is jets.

    Also agree, all signs are pointing to yes on DX11, the engines being built for it and they sure are flaunting that, the games list for it is growing, I don't see why they wouldnt take that step, stopping at DX10 would be a mistake.

    And the last quote? From the producer of BF3?

    I don't follow twitter, I despise networking sites, so I'm not sure when to find a date on that, but as far as DICE is concerned BF 3 could have easily been BF 2142, BF BC 1, or BF BC 2. Names change during production, so if there is a "BF 3" now, it might not be that later, but like I said, I'm sure one will eventually be out, just saying BF BC 2 really is what "BF 3" would be.

    Yea I was considering BF BC 2 to be BF3. I mean they are practically the same game in my opinion. I am not sure there would be much of a difference between the two if they did release a BF3. The only thing i could think of was releasing for the pc in which this game is coming out for pc.

    You're assuming that BF3 would be identical to BF2 with better graphics. Do you remember way back before the great consoleization of gaming when sequels offered more than just a minor facelift? BF3 is going back to those days. How do I know this? Because you said it yourself. BF BC2 is like BF2 minus the jets. Well do you think they will just add jets and call it a day? No they are working on something BIG. A true sequel. An old school style sequel.

    Of course nothing will be announced before March but look out Xmas of 2010. ;)

    See that I would actually call BF 3, thats what I was kind of trying to say, too many people I think were expecting a BF 2 rehash and it seems BC has filled that role. Personally I loved old BF 1942, it would be nice to see a return.

    I dont see them bringing anything like 1942 to the table for BF3. I'm really hoping they go the modern or somewhat futuristic route with BF3 but that's a biased plea since I actually enjoy 2142 (despite all it's failures and non-destructable bridges... mailman) and I feel that if DICE could do something else along those line for BF3 and really iron out the bugs they would have a real winner.

    Actually they can do anything they want.. I just hope they stay away from WWII since it's SOFA KING played out IMO.
