The next game in the Battlefield series will be set in modern times.
DICE general manager, Karl Magnus Troedsson, spoke about the setting of Battlefield 4 at GDC Europe.
He said: "There's a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on. Everything from fan's feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves. It's not just one single thing.
"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 game because it's all secret.
"We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. 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 hinted that there could be a sequel to Bad Company 2 at some point.
He added: "That doesn't mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future."
