Slashdot has information on two upcoming Battlefield releases, Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 1943.  Bad Company will be on PS3, Xbox and PC and should follow the same free style combat and unique graphical styling as the original, but with more … vehicle stuff.  Details are still a little sketchy.  Battlefield 1943 focuses on the war in the Pacific, so the popular Iwo Jima map from 1945 will be around, though it looks a little prettier in the promo movie.  Interestingly, all the material points to BF1943 being downloadable for both consoles and PCs; perhaps via Steam, perhaps as a tiered multiplayer game with those paying money having access to more gear.

“Electronic Arts announced at New York Comic Con that the Battlefield series would be getting two more titles. Battlefield 1943 will be focused on multiplayer, and it’s due out for download this summer. It will be available through the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, and there will be a PC version as well. A website has been launched for the game, and it contains a trailer. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is scheduled for winter, and it will be available for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 also. Details for Bad Company 2 are sparse, though one exec said, “… it takes everything that players liked in the original and ups the ante — more vehicles, more destruction and more team play.”
