If you enjoy regular DLC updates for your games and you plan to pick up Battlefield 3 you should count yourself lucky. In an interview with CVG DICE's Lars Gustavsson reveals that there are major plans in place for DLC post-launch.
"Nowadays, we have operations team who looks at the title when it starts getting closer to launch (or long before) with potential downloadable content and so on, to really have a plan.", says Gustavsson.
"Otherwise you're quite likely to start slipping. If you're focusing just before release on what you're going to ship post-launch, then I think you have problems. So, yes there is a massive plan in place." he concludes.
