Battlefield: Bad Company 2 beta skipping the Xbox 360 “wasn’t a personal thing”

Battlefield Bad Company 2 developer DICE’s producer Gordon Van Dyke has clarified on why the beta for BC2 isn’t coming to Xbox 360. “If we could have done a beta on all of them we would have. We can’t go into all the details, because some of it has to do with legal stuff, but it was really just logistics.”

“There was no, we want to do it on the PS3 and then go to Sony and then they grease us for doing it,” he added. “No. It was like, we need to do this, we need to do it in these time frames, and we were open to all options. Unfortunately it didn’t work out for Xbox 360, but it was nobody’s fault and it wasn’t a predetermined decision. It wasn’t a personal thing, absolutely not. We would have given it to everyone if we could have, but it just didn’t work out that way.”

The PlayStation 3 beta is over and the PC beta is set to begin later this month . A multiplayer demo will be arriving on all systems in early March.
