    Do you mean the order they were released? On the actual time-periods they take place in?

    The problem with that is that 1942 takes place all the way up to the Battle of Berlin and Iwo Jima. You can certainly say it is before 1943 since it started in 1942 (I think, I don't remember the earliest battle in that game (Tobruk?) since I haven't played in years), but it doesn't mean it ends earlier.

    Probably better to say:

    1942/1943 (and expansions)
    Vietnam
    Battlefield 2 (maybe)
    Bad Company 1/2
    BF 3
    BF 4
    2142


    Though granted, I could easily be wrong on that.

    Where could BF3 multi-player take place?

    No idea. I'm winging it on anything past Vietnam since that's the last game in the series I played :p

    Also remember there is Battlefield 2: Modern Combat which is set around 2004/2005, roughly the time of the game's release - hence Modern Combat.

    Okay, over the last week I have been working on the timeline and I am proud to say I am though the WWII era and I am now working on Vietnam.

    I think, and this might be a leap, that Battlefield 1942 is set in 1942. Call it a hunch. :p

    Actually no. Both 1942 and 1943 take place over the course of the war (trust me if it was that easy I would already be in modern times :p ). The games mostly take place in 1944.

    They certainly do cover a large part of the war, from Wake Island in 1941, Midway in 1942, the Guadalcanal campaign that stretched from '42-'43, the invasion of the Philippines that covered from '41 to '42, the Battle of Britain in 1940, the various aspects of the Normandy invasion in 1944...the city of Kharkov had around four different battles over the span of three years that weren't 1944, and the majority of the North African theatre is pre-1942.

    So yes, you're right, they take place over the course of the war, but most certainly not predominantly in 1944.

    I have done my research. A good 40% of the battles take place in 1944.

    On a different note I am working on the World War 3 timeline (c.2003-2007) and here is my rough draft.

    2003:
    BF: Bad Company
    BF: Bad Company Multi-Player
    BF: Bad Company 2
    2004:
    BF2
    BF2: Special Force (Concurrent with BF2)
    BF2: Armored Fury
    2005:
    BF2: Euro Force
    2006:
    BF2: Modern Combat
    2007:
    Wake Island 2007

    Of course this will be more detailed later but for the time being this is my rough draft for WW3.
