PostSubject: Developers Getting Bored with Modern FPSs, Says DICE   Sat Jul 07, 2012 12:06 am

DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson believes that modern day settings for FPS games are getting stale and developers are looking elsewhere.

"I think we're going to start seeing people moving away from the modern setting, because every now and again settings or themes start to get stale and then everyone jumps over," said Troedsson.

Troedsson says that developers are now moving their focus to near-future settings. "Y'know, at some point dinosaurs are the hottest thing and everyone is making games with dinosaurs, but there are trends,” said Troedsson. “It used to be WWII, and recently it's been the modern era and people are now moving towards near future."

But that isn’t enough to ensure innovations, reckons the Battlefield 3 developer.

"But it's a bit cheap to just say, 'Okay, we're going to switch and go back in time or into the future and that will be innovation'. It will definitely drive the franchise forward for whatever game, but it's not true innovation, it's more a thematic change that has a perceived value to the gamers out there. But as a developer you can only make so many games in one particular era, and then you personally start to get a bit bored with it.

"I think it's our responsibility as game developers to always push ourselves when it comes to the experience of games," concluded Troedsson.
