DICE calls Modern Warfare 2 "the game to beat"

Game developer DICE calls MW2

DICE senior producer Patrick Bach considers Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 as "the game to beat", according to an interview from Xbox World 360 reported on by sister magazine CVG.

The comment from Bach came when he was asked in the interview if DICE developed Battlefield: Bad Company 2‘s single player and multiplayer together or separately like IW had done with MW2.

"No," replied Bach. "Both were developed very much in parallel, with no lead platform. Our idea is that the single-player should be almost like a tutorial for multiplayer, and vice versa. Modern Warfare 2 is the class leader, the game to beat but not to replicate. We wanted to write our own songs, so to speak."

Bach was also asked in the interview if DICE felt threatened by Medal of Honor.

"We won’t alter our products simply because EA has another project in the same genre," Bach stated. "We’re owned by EA but we’re still very much DICE."
