Battlefield 3 won't be getting a color grade option

DICE has rescinded on its word to introduce a feature that allows players to tinker with Battlefield 3's color grading in the next patch, according to staff member Mikael Kalms.

Posting to the MordorHQ ideo game forums, Kalms apologized for speaking too soon when he announced only days ago that DICE was introducing a console command that will allow users to disable and enable color grading in the game with the next PC game client update.

He posted again today saying that the studio decided to not implement the feature and apologized for getting anyone's hopes up. Kalms posted a statement from DICE that read:

"As a studio, it is extremely important for us at DICE to have a unique identity in our games, not only from a gameplay perspective, but visually as well. While we appreciate that some players might want a slightly different look to the game, we are proud of the visual identity of Battlefield 3 and do not wish to change it."
